Learning is a lifelong pursuit. Kelvin Smith Library wants to support your personal and professional growth after graduation. All alumni are welcome to visit the Kelvin Smith Library (KSL), have a cup of coffee or snack in the KSL Cramelot cafe, browse the collections, attend a lecture or exhibit. While at KSL you may use one of our Guest computers to access our entire collection of research databases, e-books, digital journals, statistical and scientific datasets and much more. KSL has an outstanding collection of print and digital materials covering every imaginable discipline.
We have also developed a suite of resources and services that will allow you to continue to enjoy many of the advantages you had as a student such as borrowing books and films, taking classes to keep up with the latest multimedia technology, using research database from your home or anywhere you have an internet connection.

We know that alumni would like to retain access to some of the online databases that they used as students, or use resources that are new to them. While licensing restrictions do not allow alumni access to all of the Case online resources that are available to current students, the KSL Alumni Online library provides access to selected research databases covering a wide variety of subjects.
Kelvin Smith research librarians have compiled a list of useful, freely available web resources from both public and private organizations.
