New library services for alumni
The Libraries' new alumni website makes it easier than ever before for University alumni to take advantage of the rich resources and collections of the University Libraries.
The site presents links to selected, authoritative web resources that provide reliable information on the topics of most relevance to alumni.
The site also connects alums to our network of expert reference librarians. Alumni can e-mail questions to us and we'll answer them (on average) within 24 hours--or contact us for a live, interactive chat session.
The site's FAQ section presents answers to basic questions--like how to borrow books, how to obtain copies of journal articles, and how to use the Libraries' broad toolkit of online resources.
Members of the University of Minnesota Alumni Association can also access selected licensed databases online, including Academic Search Premier and Business Source Premier. Both of these databases will provide full-text articles from a wide range of journals and newspapers.
We value alumni commitment to lifelong learning and the role our alums continue to play in making the University Libraries a rich and vibrant intellectual center of campus life. To take advantage of the site, visit the Libraries alumni website
