Loyola University Chicago Libraries

Career & Certification Resources

Prep for graduate school, a professional certification, or find resources to increase your leadership skills, ethical understanding of business, and more. This research guide is intended for current students in the Quinlan School of Business and alumni.

Getting Access to the Library

All Loyola Alumni have access to the libraries.  They can borrow books, access the facilities, and get guest access to computers.  As of 2016, Alumni will also be able to access the Wi-Fi on Loyola's campus!  In order to access the library, alumni must obtain an Alumni Card from the Campus Card Office.  Alumni will not be admitted without an alumni card.

For information on obtaining an alumni card, click here.

Services available include:

  • Use materials and services at the university's Cudahy, Lewis, and Health Science library branches.
  • Charge up to 100 books.
  • Keep books for 6 weeks with an option to renew for unlimited additional periods (with the exception of the Health Sciences library, where the lending period is 21 days). (You can renew books from the library catalog by logging in with your email address and last name as your default password. Please update your password to something you will remember.)
  • Request books owned by the Loyola Libraries for pickup at the circulation desk of your choice, using the library catalog.
  • Request "in-process" books before they have been shelved.
  • Request scans of articles from the Loyola Libraries (subject to limitations in peak periods).
  • View videos from the collections within the libraries.
  • Access selected web resources with a guest computer login. (Please note that due to contractual agreements, we cannot provide access to these resources from off-campus for Alumni.)

Access to the Law Library (located on the 3rd floor of the Corboy Law Center) is restricted to law alumni only. Access and borrowing information can be found online here.
