Services for Alumni

Setting up an account to borrow material

You can obtain a borrower card specifically for alumni to borrow material from the library. Some restrictions and responsibilities apply.

Read about obtaining an alumni borrower card and alumni borrowing restrictions.

Accessing material from off-campus

While most databases and e-journals are not available to alumni from off campus due to licensing restrictions, the library is able to offer remote access to the following resources. You will need to create a Alumni Access account, using the barcode number from your Alumni Library Card.

Please note: You must always access these resources from this page as your Alumni Access account will not be recognized if you try to access these resources from the library catalogue or website.
