The Kelvin Smith Library celebrates scholarship by the alumni of Case Western Reserve University, and the previous affiliated institutions. The books, movies, and other content reflect various topics. By listing items, the Kelvin Smith Library is not endorsing the content nor guaranteeing the campus libraries possess it. The status of each author as an alum has been verified before an item was included.

Databases Offered

Online Databases

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.

The resources below can be assessed using your Case Network ID. 

Research Services Librarians

You can contact a librarian by phone, email, chat, or in-person to assist in all your needs. See our Ask A Librarian services page.
