Alumni Library Services

  

All university libraries would like to provide their alumni with continued access to online databases. Unfortunately, vendor licenses restrict access to currently-enrolled students. CityU Library has looked into providing off-site access to our alumni, but we have found that most of the full-text content is removed from the alumni databases by the vendors. We do re-evaluate this option on a regular basis, but we have not yet found a package that we feel meets alumni needs. Please note that many of your favorite online databases may be available to you at no cost through your local public library - or for a fee through your local public academic library.

CityU does provide alumni with the following resources and services:

  • Ask a Librarian for personalized research help via e-mail, instant messaging, Skype, or by phone.
