You are welcome to use all of the PLU library's resources, including article databases, when visiting the PLU campus. Help desk staff will log you in to a library computer that will give you access to subscription resources. However, due to vendor licensing restrictions, we regret that we cannot provide alumni access to library databases from off campus: access is restricted to current students, faculty, and staff. If you do try to log in, you will be prompted for a PLU ePass. ePass access to library resources expires upon graduation. An alumni library card does not include off-campus access to databases.
Your PLU ID (Lutecard) is your library card. When you first check out a book, our circulation staff will add a barcode to the back of your Lutecard. There is no limit to the number of books, journals, or CDs you can check out, and you can check out up to 5 DVDs at a time. Late fines are 25 cents per item, per day, 25 cents per hour for reserves.
