Alumni/Community Services

Alumni and Local Communities

LSU SVM alumni, veterinary, health care, and legal professionals are invited and encouraged to use the services of the SVM Library. Visiting patrons may use all library resources, including print and electronic books, journals, and audiovisual materials, as well as the public computers, scanner and reference services, when in the SVM Library.

Due to licensing restrictions, access to electronic resources off-site is limited to current LSU faculty, staff, and students only. LSU’s policy states that graduating student privileges expire on graduation day. 

Non-LSU affiliated patrons unable to visit the SVM Library may request literature searches and reference help, as well as articles and book chapters through the SVM Library's Public Services department by emailing svmlibrary@lsu.edu or by calling 225-578-9800. Please refer to fee chart below. 

Dean's Circle members receive library services, such as literature searches, photocopy services, and articles obtained through InterLibrary Loan, free of charge. Click here for information about the Dean's Circle of Giving.
