Remember your access to the Columbia Libraries continues after you graduate!
Access to our licensed electronic databases continues for a period of three months beyond the degree conferral date. After this period the Libraries provide alumni with remote access to a small set of databases. See the Libraries’ Alumni and Friends website for a list.
Recent alumni may use libraries spaces for a period of thirty days after the date of graduation using their student ID cards. After thirty days, alumni must obtain an alumni card in the Library Information Office in Room 201 of Butler Library.
For more information on alumni privileges, see:
