Library Advice for New Grads

The HSHSL sends its heartfelt congratulations to the graduating class of 2024! As you prepare to take on new challenges, we want to remind you of the support and resources available to you beyond graduation.

  • Journals and Databases: Alumni can access HSHSL’s electronic resources off campus for 2 months after graduation.
  • Free Databases: Once your electronic access expires, you will still have access to public databases for literature, drug information, and more. Some examples are highlighted below. Additionally, be sure to investigate what resources you have through your new workplace and any professional organizations of which you are a member.
