John Moritz Library: Alumni

Alumni Resources

Many of John Moritz Library's resources and services are available to you as an alumnus if you are able to come to the Josie Harper campus. We require verification of alumni status, photo identification, and registration into the library's user database. Alumni privileges are subject to annual renewal for address/phone/email verification.

Off-campus use of databases is not available to alumni due to licensing restrictions.

Services available to alumni who visit the library in person:

  • Borrowing books (not reserve items)
  • Using computers for Internet research
  • Please note: Currently enrolled students are always given priority for scholarly resources as well as devices such as computers, printers, and copy machines.
  • Please note: All items needed by students, faculty, or staff are subject to recall at any time.

Services NOT available to alumni include: 

  • Interlibrary loan
  • Access to licensed resources and databases
  • Borrowing audiovisual materials or equipment
  • Borrowing laptop computers 

Alumni do not have credentials to log into campus computers. See library staff member for computer access and/or printing.

JML's license agreements with vendors and publishers prohibit off-campus access to alumni. However, there are other outlets for access to books, databases, and journals.

Investigate the following:

Your employer:

  • Hospital or medical center - Most have libraries.
  • Physician's practice - Hospitals for which the practice has admitting privileges might offer library services to the physician's nursing staff.
  • College or university - Might offer many of the same databases, resources, and services as JML.
  • Government - Some government agencies have libraries.
  • Corporate - Some large companies have libraries.

If you do not have library access through your employer: 

  • Use the free resources linked below.
  • Contact hospital libraries in your area and inquire about library services to community healthcare professionals.
  • Find a Loansome Doc provider. This service, offered by the National Library of Medicine, enables healthcare professionals to set up agreements with medical libraries to obtain full text copies of journal articles for a fee.
  • Use your local public library, especially for interlibrary loan services.
