Unfortunately, alumni do not have off campus access to subscription databases. The one exception is that alumni can access databases as guest community users on campus at the one hour public access computers in the library, just as any other community member can.

There are other options for alumni conducting research, including using free services such as Google Scholar and Worldcat, limited public access services such as the open JSTOR, and free discipline specific databases such as ERIC and PubMed. For more options, please contact us to consult with a librarian.

Note: Members of WWU's Alumni Association used to have access to EBSCO's Academic Search Alumni Edition, but the subscription to that has been discontinued.
