What access do alumni members have?

Answer

Colchester Albert Sloman library

  • As an alumnus, you would be able to borrow up to 5 books from the Main Collection. These items are subject to recall (when requested by other members).
  • Books that are in the Student Collection on floor 1 are not available to alumni due to them being prioritised for current students, as they are on reading lists.
  • You are also able to have walk-in access to a limited selection of e-resources, available on specific PCs in the library. Please see the FAQ in the links below for more information.
  • The Alumni office also offer remote access to e-resources through JSTOR.


To access these services, please ensure you have applied and received your Alumni card through the Alumni website.https://www.essex.ac.uk/alumni
