Library Resources for Alumni

Freely Available Online Resources
We have some helpful guidance on searching free resources here: BrownSchoolLibrary/CommunityAccess

Additional alumni resources are listed on this webpage:

Alumni Library Access

As an alum, you are welcome to schedule time with Lori Siegel for reference assistance. You can also visit the library and access university resources from campus during our weekday daytime hours. Please check here for current open times.

Public Libraries
Public libraries provide access to many databases, and their inter-library loan services are usually free or available at a nominal charge. Once you have your public library card set up, you can access most of what you want online.  In St. Louis you can have accounts with all four library systems... 
St. Louis Public Library 
St. Louis County Library
Municipal Library Consortia (University City, Webster, Kirkwood, etc…),
St. Charles City-County Library  

Alumni WUSTL Keys
While you are a student or employed here, your WUSTL key is how you access library resources online. When you graduate, you maintain your WUSTL Key as an alum so you can access your transcript via WebStac but it will no longer give you access to online library resources.

Alumni Edition Database Collection 

Due to lack of use, Brown School Library phased out our Alumni Collection with the final stage ending July 1, 2020.
