While alumni have no desire to stay up all night in Milner as they did before finals, the chance for access to such a rich resource is often missed. Now graduates are able to connect with Milner Library research databases at no cost through the Alumni Association.

Academic Search Alumni Edition and Business Source Alumni Edition represent valuable tools to assist you with both personal and professional research. Similar to your days as a student, these two databases offer articles from more than 4,000 journals and publications.

“For years alumni have requested access to the full-text articles and journals they used as students. We know staying current and finding good information becomes even more important after graduating. It becomes part of lifelong learning,” Milner Dean Dane Ward said. “We are really pleased to be able to offer databases to our alums as a small contribution to their continual learning.”
