Alumni Library Privileges

We recognize that many ASU graduates would like to continue to use the library’s collections and services after their student privileges expire upon graduation.   

Accessing online resources

All alumni are welcome to visit any of our library locations and access electronic resources via public computers or their own laptop or mobile device using the ASU Guest network (see more Visitor Information). Unfortunately remote access to electronic research resources is limited by license to current students, faculty, and staff of Arizona State University.

Alumni may freely search Library One Search to identify materials they are interested in prior to coming to our locations to access them.

Information on ASURITE accounts and computing services for alumni can be found at UTO Help Center.


ASU Library will be ending its subscription to RefWorks, effective June 30, 2019, at which time alumni will lose access to their RefWorks accounts. Please visit our RefWorks transition page for instructions on how to move your RefWorks citations to another citation manager prior to June 30, 2019.

Information and reference assistance

ASU Alumni are welcome to utilize our Ask a Librarian (email or chat online or in person at one of our information desks) for assistance in locating information, using our collection, or in assistance locating alternative resources available to them in their local area. 

ASU history

The ASU Library's University Archives documents the history of Arizona State University and its predecessor institutions.  University Archives has made a variety of materials, including past ASU course catalogs and ASU Dissertations and Theses (after 2011) available online.  Find out more in their Finding ASU History Library Guide, or Ask an Archivist.
