YES! When you are on campus:

Once you earned your degree from AU, you're eligible for an alumni borrowing card, which you can sign up for at AU Library's Circulation and Course Reserves Desk on the First Floor.

You may use books within the library without an account, but you will not be able to leave with them. 

Please check the library's hours page to make sure we'll be open when you plan to come by.

While in the library, alumni may use most, but not all, electronic resources.

Services when you are off campus:

Remotely, alums have access to selected databases, including JSTOR, Academic Search Premier Alumni Edition (an electronic database specifically for alumni), Project Muse, GreenFile (indexing and abstracting resource covering aspects of human impact to the environment), Current Digest of the Post-Soviet Press, Sage Journals, Library Information Science & Technology Abstracts (LISTA), and American Doctoral Dissertations: 1933-1955.

If you would like further assistance, please Ask-A-Librarian.
