Alumni Resources

Syracuse University Alumni Resources

Welcome and congratulations, SU Alumni! Even though you've graduated, you still have access to some of the resources you were able to use while you were a student. This section highlights some of the resources that are still available to you as alumni, as well as some publicly available ones that are also free for you to use.

Books and Other Physical Materials

Books on shelvesAlumni who have completed a degree program at Syracuse University, University College, or SUNY-ESF are eligible to obtain a free Guest Borrower card to check out materials from the Libraries for 28 days. Note that there are some restrictions; alumni can have 20 items checked out at a time, and can renew these items up to 5 times. We regret that we are not able to offer interlibrary loan service to alumni. To obtain your Guest Borrower card, please present your Alumni ID card at the Circulation Desk.

For more information on our alumni loan policies, please check Borrowing Privileges and Computer Access.

Accessing Online Resources

Circulation deskDue to licensing restrictions, alumni access to our databases, e-journals, and articles is only available on campus. Register at the Bird Library circulation desk to obtain a computer key to use.

Also, check out the Free Online Resources for some similar resources that are freely and publicly accessible.

Ask Us!

Alumni can contact the Libraries for assistance in a variety of ways, including in-person, via email, text, live chat, or phone. Check the Ask Us page for details.
