The UCSC Library offers many services and resources of special interest to alumni, including documents about the history of the campus, sources to help you take your academic life or career to its next stage, and tools for continuing education and intellectual growth.
While all alumni have access to the same considerable resources as the general public, members of the UCSC Alumni Association (or any UC alumni association) are entitled to an extended set of library resources, including electronic journals and databases, and borrowing materials from both McHenry and Science & Engineering libraries. PROGRAM EXTENDED: The Library and the Alumni Association are pleased to offer Alumni Association members free access to the Alumni Digital Library (Proquest). This service includes more than 2300 online journals, magazines, and newspapers, many with full text.
* Note: Alumni borrowing privileges include local holdings, including UCSC titles stored off-campus. However, interlibrary borrowing services and Melvyl Request access to collections of other libraries are not included.
ProQuest is an electronic data service offering thousands of online journals and magazines covering a wide array of subjects. The Friends of the UCSC Library and the UCSC Alumni Assocation are covering the cost for this service in order to offer it at no charge to current members.
