Enquiry of the Month: Accessing the Library after graduation?

Congratulations! Graduation is a great time of year – and we love a good cap-throwing, champagne party.


Royal Holloway alumni have access to the Royal Holloway libraries and may borrow up to 10 items at any one time; these must be either ‘One Week’ or ‘Normal’ loan items. At the moment, we can’t guarantee access to online resources, but email library@royalholloway.ac.uk and let us know which resources you want to access – we might be able to help.

To join the Library as an alumni applicants should bring either their old college card, degree certificate, or a letter from their department, to the helpdesk in either library at Royal Holloway, and fill in an application form. Membership will be granted for up to 3 years.

You can also access your RefWorks account for a year after graduation – this means you can continue to save references, and export them into another reference manager to keep a record of your work. To find out more, contact library@royalholloway.ac.uk.
