Like a lot of things, alumni access to Yale’s libraries was suspended during the pandemic. But now, alums have several ways to take advantage of the university’s collections. Simply by setting up an account with the library, they can have access to the Sterling stacks. And this fall, the library introduced a tiered set of programs with fees ranging from $90 to $250 per year.
