Access Online Resources

Alumni are welcomed to use the library computer to

  • check e-mail;
  • search the library catalog;
  • access free online resources as well as the Internet.

Access to the libraries subscribed databases and e-journals is available only to current Saint Peter’s University students, faculty and staff holding a valid OneCard, due to licensing agreements and copyright restrictions.

Reference librarians welcome inquiries of a general nature. Research assistance for graduate courses being taken at other institutions should be directed to the student’s primary graduate library.

If you have any questions, please ask a librarian (201-761-6460; reference@saintpeters.edu). We'd be happy to help!
