Campus Resources

Teachers College Alumni are welcome to use the Gottesman Libraries resources, both print and online, within Russell Hall for no fee. A photo ID must be presented to the Security guard in Zankel Building for entrance to the campus, and Alumni must first visit the Alumni Affairs Office to procure documentation needed by the Security Office for access to the Gottesman Libraries. Alumni may purchase borrowing privileges for books for $30.00 per month, payable online.



Teachers College alumni have access to all Columbia University-wide Alumni E-Resources. Please visit:


Education Program Events

Alumni are welcome and encouraged to participate in the full range of library-sponsored events, including book talks, exhibitions, films, monthly newsletter, musical performances, newspaper programs, and other special events. We also provide specialized orientations each semester for alumni on the use of e-resources, as well as access to online learning modules that support research.



Teachers College Alumni with a UNI account have full access to PocketKnowledge, the digital repository and social archive for Teachers College. Alumni without a UNI should speak to the Office of Alumni Relations to learn how to obtain a UNI account. Alumni are welcome to use library scanners for the purpose of uploading self-authored materials into PocketKnowledge.


Please contact us via a Library Support Request to learn more about available resources.
