Welcome to Keuka College Alumni Library Resources Guide
Keuka College alumni are welcome to visit the Lightner Library in person to use our print and online resources on campus. However, because of licensing agreements, Keuka alumni do not have remote access to subscription databases such as Academic Search Premier and ProQuest.
There are many free online scholarly resources available, and this guide will connect you to many of them including: books, free databases, online journals, government websites, and statistics websites.
Your local public library provides access to many databases and online journals and will request materials on Interlibrary Loan for their patrons.
New York Public Library

New York State Community College Libraries
All New York State Community College libraries allow community members to check out materials. Their online database cannot be accessed from off campus but can be used if the patron is in the library. NYS libraries will also request materials on Interlibrary Loan for their patrons.
