Congratulations to you, University of Alberta graduate!
You’re ready to hit up the real world with your brain full of academic wonder, but what happens when someone tries to challenge your knowledge base once you’ve left U of A’s bunny-frolicked campus grounds? Which academic resources can you use as an alumni to solidify your arguments?
Fear not! Your University of Alberta Libraries have got your back!
The first thing you can do is stop by the ONEcard office to get your Alumni card, which will also act as your library card. Your Alumni library access allows you to borrow up to 30 books, periodicals, or other specialized materials from any of our U of A libraries. Additionally, your Alumni ONEcard will score you some other great perks.
Join us on-campus to do your research and pick up a temporary CCID so that you can dive into our full suite of electronic databases. If you’re an armchair academic and would like to search databases from your couch, sign up to access our Alumni e-resources or check out open access sources such as ERA or the Directory of Open Access Journals.
