Lifelong learning after graduation

As graduation approaches, I’d like to remind out soon-to-be alumni about library privileges that they will continue to have.  The alumni card allows for in-library borrowing, as well as  URSUS or MaineCat requests.   With the card alumni can also print from library computers and photocopy.  Check here for more information.

Though the card does not allow access to library databases, librarians can still help alumni find suitable resources.  For example Marvel! offers Maine residents access to common databases.  Some resources, such as the ERIC database,  have open web versions.

Remind your soon-to-be graduates that the libraries are still here for them.  Then they, too, can avail themselves of lifelong learning.
