Library Resources for Alumni

The Library is happy to offer certain services and access to some of our resources for alumni. 

Due to licensing agreements and authentication issues, most article databases are restricted to current students, faculty and staff.

If you are visiting the Stevens Point area, feel free to stop by the Library's reference desk for help accessing resources. You always have access to resources in person with a guest pass.
