Visiting the Brandeis Library

The Goldfarb-Farber Library at Brandeis University is open to the public. Visitors, including Brandeis alumni, are welcome to visit the library and use resources. Here are some options available to alumni:

  • Use of computer terminals in the Goldfarb InfoCommons. Visitors can access most of our databases with scholarly literature from these computers. 
  • Use of scanners.  You can send scans to your email address, or save them to a flash drive that you bring with you.
  • Use of printers (cash only)
  • Use of physical books within the library (you are allowed to scan a portion of most books) 
  • If you are current member of the Brandeis University Alumni Association, you can borrow books
