Alumni Access

Alumni are welcome to visit the library. Staff will provide assistance in locating materials both in print and electronic format. Alumni may use library resources within the library, or print or photocopy materials using the library's self-service printers and copiers. There is a fee for printing and copying. An Alumni ID is not needed to access resources onsite. To borrow print books for use outside the Library, you will need a UR Alumni ID.

Remote access to electronic resources is restricted, due to publisher contracts, to current University of Rochester faculty, staff, and students.

Alumni may obtain off-campus access to selected resources (mostly humanities journals) through the Alumni Gateway. Access via the Alumni Gateway is managed by Rush Rhees Library on River Campus.
