My colleague wrote this side splitting blog about what you’ll miss about Villanova after graduation. It usually takes a little while before you miss easy access to library resources, but when when you do, here is what you can do:
- Alumni are eligible for free courtesy borrower cards which enable you to borrow books, enter the library during all open hours (which vary depending on the season), and use most databases on-site only. Unfortunately our license agreements only allow remote access for current students, staff and faculty.
- To obtain a courtesy borrowers card you will need to complete a Courtesy Card Application (only available in paper at the library front desk) and show identification. Library staff will confirm your alumni status and UNIT will mail the card ( I cannot accurately estimate the time frame for this).
- Before the card is received, you will be able to use databases in the library by logging in with a public user name and password.
- By all means, get a public library card! Most public libraries offer remote access to databases. Their holdings may not be as scholarly or extensive as what you’ve become used to at Falvey Memorial Library, but you can’t beat the convenience!
