Information for Alumni


Alumni are eligible to borrow books, movies, and other materials from the library. To receive a Reed library card and login to the catalog, bring a drivers license or state ID to the circulation desk. Make sure your alumni information is updated in the Reed database. Alumni are not eligible to borrow equipment or request materials via the Summit catalog or ILL.

Database, article full text, and ebook access

Alumni can access most databases, articles, and ebooks while physically on campus using their Kerberos logins. When off-campus, alumni 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.

Computers and printing

You may use computers in the library and the educational technology center (ETC) using your Kerberos credentials. Printing from the password-protected computers is limited to current Reed students, staff, and faculty. Alumni may print resumes and job search related materials in the Center for Life Beyond Reed in Prexy.

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.
