Resources for Alumni

Alumni Privileges




Due to the pandemic, the Library collection and buildings is only accessible to current SJU students, faculty and staff.  If you have a question about the collection, please contact Anne Krakow, Library Director. 

Database licensing restrictions curtail access to alumni, and is restricted to current students, faculty, and staff members with valid network accounts and passwords.

Although we cannot provide access to those resources, many databases are available through local public libraries. Please see the POWER Library tab for more information.
