The library provides Dartmouth alumni special access to certain library resources.
Off-campus access to many of the library databases. Your NetID is required, but a library card is not.
Alumni may browse the catalog, but to check out books, you need a library card. Alumni only have access to journals and databases in the Digital Library for Alumni.
Alumni can log into the catalog to renew items if they have been issued a library card.
Details on all library services alumni can access.

Alumni Memorial Book Fund (PDF)
For more than 70 years, classes of Dartmouth alumni have honored deceased classmates through this special book purchasing program. The Library carefully selects the memorial volumes and creates a special bookplate bearing the name of the classmate being memorialized. Since its inception, over 55 classes have participated, and over 12,800 books have been added to the library collection.
