Alumni

Library Services available to Alumni.

As an Alum, what library privileges do I have?

Alumni have access to the libraries' website, physical collections and resources at all campuses, as well as research and reference assistance and our Refworks Alumni program. Because of vendor restrictions, use of subscription databases and other electronic resources are limited to on campus use only. Please visit a library if you need to access full text articles.

What borrowing privileges do I have?

Alumni may check out circulating library books and you will need to have an Alumni Card to do so. The usual borrowing period is three weeks and a limit of three items at any one time, with one renewal period of another three weeks. A library fine of more than $8.00 results in your borrowing privileges being blocked until the fine is paid. Alumni may not use the Interlibrary Loan service.

How do I obtain an Alumni card?

The Alumni Relations Office is located on the Dobbs Ferry campus in Verrazzano Hall, Room 26. Please contact the Alumni Relations Office for more information.

How do I access the libraries' resources in the library?

All the library computers now require username and password logins.  Library staff can supply you with a visitor ID and password. You will then have access to the libraries' resources.

What about off campus access to subscription databases?

Alumni do not have access to our subscription databases and other electronic resources from off campus because of restrictions by our vendors.

What else do I need to know?

For assistance or further questions about library use by alumni please call (914) 674-7256 or email inquiries to libcirc@mercy.edu.
