Information for Alumni


Welcome to McKillop Library!
Congratulations on graduating from Salve Regina University! As an alumnus, you are allowed access to many of McKillop Library's resources.

Alumni Library Card
If you would like to borrow books and DVDs from the library, we can issue an Alumni Library Card. Just come to the front desk of the library, state that you are an alumnus and would like borrowing priveleges. The library card entitles you to borrow books and DVDs from McKillop Library. Due to licensing restrictions, we are unable to provide off-campus subscription database access or loan materials from other HELIN libraries or through Interlibrary loan. Alumni should contact their nearest public library to explore outside borrowing options.

On-Campus Research Access
You may come to the library and use library computers to access our subscription databases. (In order to use a library computer, please ask a library staff member to log you on.)

Off-Campus Research Access
There are also a number of databases offered through the State of RI* and the Government that you can access off-campus.

The State of RI and the U.S. Government offer free access to a number of databases to assist you in your ongoing research efforts.

Printing in the Library
In order to print in the library without a valid Salve ID, you will need to purchase a print pass in the Bookends Cafe (1st FL of the library across from the Circulation Desk). Each black & white page will cost $ .10; each color page will cost $ .25. The print pass kiosk takes bills only and does not give change. Print passes are valid for a year from the date of purchase.
