Smith College alumnae enjoy a number of library benefits both on and off campus.
Smith alumnae are welcome to use library databases, ebooks, and ejournals onsite. Computers are available for alumnae use.
Generally, due to licensing restrictions, off-campus access to most of our databases is only available to current Smith students, faculty, and staff. The licenses do not permit off-campus access for alumnae.
However, a few vendors do allow alumnae access from off-campus. [See list below.] Access is through the Alumnae Association website; you will not be able to connect to these databases through the Libraries website.
First step: register via the Alumnae Directory.

The following is a list of resources available through the Alumnae Association website.
You may use your OneCard or apply for a library borrower’s card at the circulation desk of any of the libraries (please bring a picture ID). There is no charge for a borrower’s card, but it must be renewed annually. Alumnae may borrow materials in person only; the Libraries do not lend materials to alumnae by mail.
