Retired employees of the university continue to have library privileges. Upon presentation of a current university identification card, materials may be borrowed and access to interlibrary loans is available as well as other reference and staff services. Retired faculty and staff have access to electronic library resources and databases on campus locations only. Off-campus access is not available, due to licensing restrictions.
Some UI departments provide office space for retired faculty, contingent upon availability of space. This option should be investigated on an individual basis with your department.
The 2008 Flood has left the
University of Iowa Museum of Art (UIMA) homeless -- it will not
go back to its old building on Riverside Drive. But UI President
Sally Mason has promised there will be a UIMA, and the support
of community donors and volunteers is more important than ever!
