Alumni Information

COVID-19 Update

In accordance with university policy, alumni are currently not authorized to access campus and therefore cannot visit the Libraries. However, we may be able to lend some materials to your local library via Interlibrary Loan, and we may be able to provide other services electronically. Contact your local library for Interlibrary Loan requests, or contact a Harrison Libraries staff member for other questions.

Alumni are welcome to use the Harrison Libraries. See below for policies and services.
