Congratulations to you, University of Alberta graduate! The last couple of months have been strange, to say the least, but don’t let that diminish your achievements.
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 the U ofA ’s bunny-frolicked campus grounds? Which academic resources can you use as an alumni to solidify your arguments?
Fear not! University of Alberta Library has got your back!
Once extreme social distancing is behind us and campus services open again, the first thing you can do is stop by the ONEcard office to get your Alumni ONEcard, which you can bring to any campus library and sign-up for borrowing services. Your Alumni library access allows you to borrow up to 30 books, periodicals, or other specialized materials from any of our campus 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.
No matter what your alumni library needs are, our fantastic library staff are available to help you. Just Ask Us!
