VCU Libraries for alumni

Through a partnership with VCU Alumni, VCU Libraries provides alumni with free borrowing privileges for materials (books, DVDs and CDs) in the collection. Alumni also can obtain a VCU electronic ID that will also allow access to in-building desktop computers equipped with word processing, spreadsheet, email and other productivity software, as well as network access. Alumni can also use computers and some equipment in the multimedia The Workshop as long as their use does not infringe upon students’ work.
