Information for Alumni

Indoor campus building closures

The library is not open to alumni at this time. We encourage you to use your local libraries. If there is a book that is only available at Reed, you can email to request it by mail. Alumni are responsible for mailing books back to the library by their due date at:

Reed Library Circulation
3203 SE Woodstock Blvd
Portland, OR 97202


When off-campus, alumni continue to have access to JSTOR, a full text archive of scholarly journals in various disciplines. Learn more about alumni access to JSTOR. Note that our license agreements do not allow us to provide alumni access to ebooks from off-campus.

Electronic Theses Archive

Alumni can access a digital collection of senior theses through the Reed College Electronic Theses Archive. Participation in the archive is voluntary and access is currently limited to the Reed community. If you would like to submit your thesis to the archive, please visit the etheses submission page.
