National Library Week and Alumni

We want to think of our alumni, especially as commencement draws near.  What do the USM Libraries have to offer them?  Let’s start with the current version of the Alumni Card page.

Then let’s consider resources available through our library networks. Cloud Library is an exciting collection of ebooks and electronic audiobooks.

Though I’ve mentioned Marvel! (Maine’s Virtual Library) before, I’ll also highlight a particular resource within it, LearningExpress Library. . You’ll find it in MARVEL’s A-Z database list.  Once you’ve created a free account, you can access a great number of test preparation and career development resources

Share these resources with your students, our soon-to-be alumni.  For National Library Week (April 9-15) the American Library Association shared some “Because. . .libraries transform.” statements.  I’ll close with one of my own: Because learning doesn’t stop at graduation, libraries transform.
