Services for Truman Alumni
How do I get a library card? What can I check out and for how long? What are the fines for keeping it too long?
Guest Internet Access
For internet access, alumni can get a Guest Account password at the Library Service Desk by providing a photo I.D. and phone number. The Guest Accounts must be used on the four Guest workstations located just past the circular staircase on the first floor. The password is good for one hour of internet access and is renewable for one additional hour. Printing is available for 10 cents per page. Pick up your prints at the Library Service Desk.
Special Collections - Hours 7:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Monday - Friday (closed holidays).
University Archives -Special Collections is the repository for the University Archives -- business papers, legal documents, official and unofficial publications (departmental papers, newsletters, presidential papers, etc.), student publications (The Index and old yearbooks) and much more.

We have created a list of free databases which you can use to find articles in magazines and journals. For other databases, click here for more free web links to reference sites such as legal resources, encyclopedias, dictionaries, etc.
