Services for alumni



As a McGill graduate, you belong to an impressive alumni network and this network includes access to the Library and its resources. We invite you to access our resources to continue on your learning path.

Visit the Library

All members of the public are welcome to visit any of the Library's branches and use our print and electronic resources on-site.

Note: To access our e-resources, you'll have to use one of the computers in the Library using the guest login account.

To borrow books and other print materials from the Library, you can purchase a McGill Library Borrowing Card for Alumni.

E-resources for alumni

Alumni have online access a selection of the Library's databases, e-journals, and e-books.

How to login

To access Library e-resources, you'll be asked to login using your McGill username (e-mail address) and password.

If you are an alumni who did not have a McGill username, you can get one by registering with the McGill Alumni Online Community.




Events at the Library

The Library holds a number of free annual seminars and events, often in association with the Friends of the Library. These are designed to promote the Library within the broader McGill and Montreal communities and illuminate the Library's rich collections against a vivid backdrop of Canadian history, culture and politics.
