Many libraries are now providing online resources to their alumni. It’s a great service, but what are the costs and pitfalls? What resources are libraries providing? What role does the library play?  What is the relationship with the Alumni office?  Do we charge alumni for this service? How have alumni responded? And what are the technical challenges to establishing and maintaining this service?  Sooo many questions!  This lively lunch will kick off with brief presentations from three librarians and then we’ll open up the floor to hear from participants.  We invite librarians who are already providing alumni resources to share their expertise with those of us who are just entering into this new arena.   Esther Onega, Head of the Brown Science and Engineering Library at University of Virginia was an early proponent of this service and has been working on this service for seven years.  Nancy Rosenwald, Director of the Newberry College library has just kicked off the program and will tell us about those very recent experiences.  Joan Campbell, Collections Librarian at Bowdoin College, will highlight their  new JSTOR program for alumni.
