alumni library privileges
The Seattle School alumni retain certain privileges following graduation. These include:
Borrowing Library Materials
Items may be placed on hold and are checked out for the usual loan periods. Items on Course Reserve may not be borrowed. There is a 15-item limit on materials checked out and overdue fees do apply. You must borrow in person; we do not routinely mail library materials.
Access to Electronic Resources
Full access to the electronic resources is available on campus (at The Seattle School Library). These databases include PsycINFO, ATLA, Academic Search Complete, Pep Archive, ProQuest, and numerous full-text journals. Please note that due to contractual agreements, we cannot provide access to these resources from off-campus for alumni.
Access to ATLASerials (ATLAS), an online full-text collection of more than 170 key theological journals is available off campus to our alumni through a grant from the Lily Foundation.
Research and Reference Consultations
You may do this when you are on campus (making an appointment before you come is strongly encouraged to be certain library staff is available), or from off-site via email. Library staff may provide you with one or two full-text articles from our collection to satisfy your inquiry. This service is limited at the discretion of Library staff; the needs of our current students and faculty always take precedence.
Interlibrary Loan Materials
For a 2-year trial program, we will provide a limited number of articles you need for your research, even if they are not available from our own library. The articles will be delivered to you via email but books will not be borrowed for alumni (please be sure to identify yourself as an alumnus). Again, this service is limited and at the discretion of the library staff.
Please contact Mary Rainwater (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Cheryl Goodwin (email@example.com) to request these services or if you have any questions.
