The library is open to all during our hours of operation. Visit the Guest Services page for information on borrowing, computer access, and more.
- Alumni remote access to the database should be allowed. We are more entitled to access the database than any public user of library computers. Public access to the library computers does not protect or ensure appropriate use of the data.
I spent 5 years in that library and it was my source of reference in my countless researches. I don't see how restricting remote access is necessary.
this is my personal opinion, and i'd really like that to change.
- Thank you for your comment. Database access is limited by the library's license agreements with our vendors. If we could provide Alumni access under these agreements, we absolutely would. You might consider using open access journals to continue exploring your research areas. These journals are still of very high quality, but are not restricted in the same way as library database subscriptions. You can search a huge range of topics in the Directory of Open Access Journals: https://doaj.org/
