Alumni Services Offered Through Moody Medical Library
For years alumni have inquired about gaining access to the resources of the Moody Medical Library.
Alumni are welcome to use the library’s print and electronic resources onsite. However, licensing agreements with publishers specify that off-campus access to electronic resources is limited to current students, staff and faculty.
In an effort to meet the needs of alumni who wish to continue using the library’s collections and resources after graduation, the UTMB Office of Alumni Relations and the Moody Medical Library have collaborated and created an Alumni Library Services page.
