Graduates of the University of Liverpool are welcome to join the Library as Alumni members. There is no charge, and you are entitled to borrow up to ten books for a period of two weeks.

Alumni membership does not entitle you to access computing facilities.

Most of the Library's licence agreements do not permit access by alumni, however the following e-journal collections are available to alumni:

  • Emerald - the 'EMeJ 111' collection of e-journals (which is smaller than the 'EmEJ Plus' collection offered to current staff and students.
  • JSTOR - the same collections that the library provides for current staff and students: Arts & Sciences I, II, III, IV and VII, Life Sciences, Ireland, and 19th Century British Pamphlets
  • Project Muse - the same 'Standard' collection that the library provides to current staff and students (but note that some journals are only included in the 'Premium' collection and are therefore not available to alumni or current staff and students
  • SAGE journals

See the Alumni Relations' online journals page for information about how alumni can access these collections.

Alumni can also search the guest version of DISCOVER.

In addition, access to the full range of electronic resources is available through a guest login on our walk-in access PCs, if you are able to visit the library in person.

To register for alumni membership come to the library bringing proof of ID and address. See Alumni Relations for information about all benefits available to University of Liverpool Alumni.
