Alumni cards provide free access to physical Library resources, and access to a subset of online electronic resources.
Interested in getting an Alumni Card?
Once you have your new Alumni Card, there are a few things you need to know:
We're pleased to offer a collection of electronic resources which alumni can access electronically. When we negotiate electronic resource access contracts with vendors, we work with vendors to try to include alumni access to resources as well. The list of Alumni Electronic Resources will grow as we negotiate deals with vendors who allow alumni to access their resources.
The Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) service contains free, full text, scientific and scholarly journal articles.
The Atrium, the University of Guelph institutional repository, contains free, full text, scholarly University of Guelph resources.
You are welcome to use your own laptop to access electronic resources within the Library. Learn more about wireless internet access in the Library
