University Libraries Services for KSU Alumni
Borrowing privileges: KSU Alumni Association members can borrow up to 20 items at a time from the Libraries' collection, including a maximum of 5 items from other OhioLINK libraries. To take advantage of this benefit, bring photo identification to the Circulation Desk and request Community Borrower privileges.
Interlibrary loan services: Alumni with library borrowing privileges can borrow materials (e.g., journal articles, books not available through KSU or OhioLINK) through the Libraries' Interlibrary Loan service. There is a charge of $10 for each filled request in addition to any charges assessed by the lending library.
Access to Research Databases: Licensing agreements with publishers limit off-campus access to research databases to current students, faculty, and staff. These databases are available to all onsite visitors to the Libraries.
Use of Reference Collections: The 1st and 2nd floors of the Main Library provide a variety of access to specialized resources and information technology applications. The in-person user has access to all OhioLINK resources--research databases, electronic books and journals, as well as to express multimedia workstations equipped with scanners and imaging software.
Librarian Assistance: Personalized assistance is available in person or by phone (330-672-3150). Alumni with borrowing privileges and who identify themselves may also ask a question by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
