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.

For a complete list of freely accessible databases and open access online journals, please visit the Alumni Library Services page  or  click the Library Services link under the Alumni menu above.
