Alumni Library Card
I graduated in 2015 and recently got a notification that all of my electronic access (tmail, tigerpaws, ecommons, etc) will be expiring in about a month. I am currently in grad school in Colorado and I have actually preferred to use the TU academic article databases because I have found them to be more comprehensive. I would like to keep my ability to use this service, and the alumni page on the Trinity website says that we can get a free library card. I did pay and join the alumni association when I graduated, can you let me know the process to go through to get a library card? If it helps, my student ID was 0738358.
I have attached a link to a libguide page detailing policies for alumni related to borrowing materials. I realize this may not be applicable to you since you are currently not in San Antonio.
We do have a special access for alumni to a JSTOR database that is accessible from the library homepage. Go to the library homepage and click on the link to databases located on the black bar at the top of the page. On the right side of the page you will see a listing for Database by Subject>Alumni Access. Click on the Alumni Access link and you will be taken to a page providing more information regarding the database and a link to connect directly to the database. When connecting you will be asked for a password which I can email to you separately.
Unfortunately, we cannot provide access to other databases due to subscription and licensing issues. If you were here in San Antonio, you could come into the library and access databases through a guest logon, but unfortunately, we cannot offer the off-campus access due to the reasons I mentioned.
Please let us know if you have any other questions and if you to want to have the password needed for access to the alumni jstor database.
