Library Services for Alumni Association Members

Alumni Services

Stephen F. Austin State University offers alumni access to the collections and resources of Steen Library. See the campus map to find us.


When visiting the library, alumni have access to a range of resources and services. Obtain research assistance with a RIS librarian Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. 


Search the Steen Library Catalog for items housed in the Steen Library and the Nacogdoches Public Library.  Licensed electronic resources are only available onsite.


Members of the Alumni Association will be assigned an alumni account which can be used on any public station in the building. Patrons must present an Alumni Association member card to qualify for an alumni account. For more information about guest accounts for alumni, please see
