Document Delivery/ ILL Services
The Library offers document delivery and Inter-Library Loan (ILL) services to alumni. Charges vary for these services. Please contact the Library at (856) 566-6800 for more information. Alumni are welcome to also sign up for the Loansome Doc program that allows subscribers to order copies of articles directly from a PubMed search.
Alumni have access to the Computer lab located in the Library. Software loaded on computers in the Microlab include Microsoft Office products (Word, Excel, & PowerPoint), EndNote, and Adobe Acrobat. In addition a high quality scanner capable of scanning standard graphic files, text, and negatives X-Rays is available for use in the Microcomputer Lab.
Alumni are welcome to register for classes offered by the Library. Classes are meant to provide an introduction to an area of information management or performance improvement tools. Check the Library Classes and Training web page for current offerings and registration information.
The RowanSOM Library's Research Guides contain selectively filtered links to highly useful and authoritative tools, such as databases, electronic journals and textbooks, selected Internet sites, and mobile resources by subject. Research Guides are not meant to be comprehensive compilations; rather they are powerful starting points in initiating research on a health topic. Many of the resources listed on the Research Guides are to licensed resources that alumni do not have access to off-campus, but, the Library has put together a guide just for recent graduates and alumni. It lists quality and authorative clinical and biomedical research resources and links that are available for free.
