Take advantage of library resources

License agreements and copyright laws prevent us from providing off-campus access to the library’s online resources for alumni who are not currently enrolled in coursework at the University of Arizona or anyone without a valid NetID.

When we are open to the public, you can access digital and physical content by visiting our libraries in person.

  • To access digital content, bring your laptop and use UAGuest WiFi.
  • If you don’t have a laptop, use our public computers on the 2nd floor of the Weaver Science-Engineering Library. (You’ll need a computer card, which is free).
  • Books, newspapers, and more are accessible to browse and read within the building. (To borrow books, apply for a library card.)
