Horn Library Content Strategy

Alumni Access to Library Resources

Horn Library works with the Office of Alumni Relations to provide Babson alumni with life-long access to the Library's resources.  The print collection is accessible whenever the Library is open; e-book collections and databases may be used as far as permitted by site license agreements with the vendors of these information products and services. 

Currently, 75 databases may be accessed via the computers in the Library, and of these, 16 may also be accessed from off-campus.

For more information about resources for alumni and how to gain access to them, please see the Library guide about Services for Alumni
