Alumni Services

UNCG alumni are welcome to visit the University Libraries, where they may access hundreds of databases and thousands of ejournals, use our enormous book collection, search the online catalog, or utilize our "Ask a Librarian" service. Many of these services are also available to our alumni via the web.


Alumni visitors to the UNCG Libraries are welcome to use nearly all of our three hundred databases and sixty-two thousand ejournals. If you have specific questions about which resources are available to visitors, please ask a librarian. Alumni who are NC residents can access dozens of databases for free from home via NC LIVE, including many of the databases to which the UNCG Libraries subscribe. To obtain a free NC LIVE remote access password, please contact your local NC public library.
