You've graduated! But now where can you go for information? Look no further!

Library Services for Alumni

Library Services Lost:

You will no longer be able to access full-text journal articles in many of the databases to which the library subscribes.


Library Services You Still Have:

If you live in the Grand Rapids area, you may still visit the GVSU Libraries, use our computer lab to access online journals and databases, and check out books. Your loan period will be 4 weeks, and you may have 10 items checked out at one time. More policies can be found here. You can obtain an alumni association membership card to borrow materials. 

Also, as a resident of Michigan, you can use the Michigan eLibrary in addition to your local public library.

How to Stay Informed

Government Information


In creating this library subject guide, I looked to Sue Wortman's "Staying Informed in Social Work Practice" library subject guide from the University of Michigan and Kimberly Pendell's "Open Access Social Work" library subject guide from Portland State University.
