Thanks to the Friends of the Library and the Oberlin Alumni Association, all registered graduates have access to JSTOR, Project Muse, and Sage publications via the OBIEWeb portal.
[Note: access to these resources is temporarily unavailable while the Alumni Associations transitions to the new Tappan platform. We hope to have access restored by early February. 1/22/15]
If you did not have a RefWorks account upon graduation but would like one, contact Megan Mitchell, Reference & Instruction Librarian.
If you are a graduate of the college living in Cuyahoga, Ashland, Erie, Huron, Medina, Summit, Portage, or Wayne counties you may register as a courtesy borrower.
For Oberlin residents their Oberlin Public Library card is also their college library card. Other borrowers may use an Oberlin Public Library card, or may be issued a courtesy card from the college library.
All borrowers must register at the Main Library circulation desk and provide proof of their current address (driver's license, utility bill, etc.); their library card is then valid at all the college libraries.
Alumni IDs are not valid as Oberlin College library cards.
Borrowing privileges expire periodically for the purpose of address verification. Privileges will be renewed as long as you meet one of the criteria listed above and honor the policies of the libraries.
All alumni are invited to join the Friends of the Library. Friends receive the Library Perspectives newsletter twice a year and invitations to events sponsored by the Friends, including faculty book talks. Friends get preview access to the biennial book sale and limited OhioLINK borrowing privileges.
