Q
Asked by: Loni
Question: After graduating, can I still access the library and nova net for future research outside of the university? If so, for how long? Or is this always accessible for me an an alumni?

Answered by: Emma
Answer: "SMU alumni are welcome to use the following library resources: - Novanet catalogue (also available off-campus) - e-books and e-journals (in-library use on guest computers only)* - most research databases (in-library use on guest computers only)* - print collections - microform and microform readers - photocopiers, printers and fax machine - reference and research services *Off-campus access to SMU's electronic materials and research databases is restricted to currently registered SMU students, faculty, and staff. SMU alumni can still borrow books. As part of Nova Scotia's Borrow Anywhere Return Anywhere (BARA) policy, members of the public (Nova Scotia residents 19 or older) may use a public library card to borrow materials at any Novanet library. If you do not have a public library card, we can issue what is called an off-campus borrower's card. If you need an off-campus borrower's card, you can obtain one at the Library's Circulation Desk. In most cases, you need only present an official photo ID that includes proof of Nova Scotia residence, such as a driver's license. Alumni are not eligible for Inter-Library Loan or book recall privileges." This is great to know, and I will definitely also be taking advantage of these services after graduation!
