Off-Campus Research for Alumni

Alumni seeking remote access to other online resources may wish to explore these free e-resources.

Alumni Remote Access to Electronic Resources

Remote access is available to the e-resources listed below for Western alumni. Due to licensing agreements Western Libraries cannot provide alumni with off-campus access to most electronic databases and resources available to currently enrolled students, faculty, and staff.

Graduates prior to 2015 — use your Email for Life account. To obtain your account, contact Alumni Relations.

2015 Graduates and after — your Western ( email account will become your alumni account. You do not need a separate Email for Life account.

You may access these e-resources only from this page. Trying to access them from other places like the catalogue or Google will fail because your account will not be recognized.

Reporting Problems

If you have problems connecting with any of the following e-resources, please contact Western Libraries.
