No. Library cards are renewed based on a need to use library materials in the reading rooms. Renewals be accompanied by a research visit to work with rare or general collections materials in the reading rooms.
When you're ready to visit, go to the Reading Room Calendar to request an appointment. Reader Services will schedule your orientation/renewal upon confirming your reading room appointment.
Library cards cannot be renewed for ancillary privileges, including access to electronic resources or subscription databases, or for admission to the Huntington grounds.
