Alumni can now access thousands of journal articles, book chapters from off campus

University of Chicago alumni are now able to access five important research databases and thousands of publications from any off-campus computer with an Internet connection.  These electronic resources for alumni are being provided by the University of Chicago Alumni Association and the University of Chicago Library. 

The Library is providing alumni access to thousands of journal articles, book chapters and other materials through Project MUSE and SAGE Journals Online:

  • Project MUSE is a full-text database of over 100 scholarly journals published by university presses in the humanities, social sciences, and mathematics.
  • SAGE Journals Online offers peer-reviewed journals in business, humanities, social sciences, sciences, technology, and medicine published by SAGE Publications and participating societies. Dates of coverage and access to backfiles vary by journal. To verify availability of specific journals, search the eJournals list or ask a librarian.

The University of Chicago Alumni Association is providing alumni access to thousands of publication archives through EBSCOhost:

  • EBSCO Academic Search – Alumni Edition offers full-text access to more than 2,600 scholarly journals and indexing of thousands more.
  • EBSCO Business Source – Alumni Edition offers full-text access to more than 1,300 scholarly business journals and indexing of thousands more. It also includes country economic reports, company profiles, and backfiles of many journals.
  • Articles Plus – Alumni Edition brings together content from EBSCO databases, Project MUSE, SAGE Journals Online and other sources to facilitate discovery across a range of subject areas. It lists full-text articles available to alumni, as well as articles available for purchase or available in person in the University of Chicago Library.

To access any of these databases, alumni must create a CNet ID and use it to log in.  Those alumni who have forgotten their CNet password can reset it online or contact IT Services for assistance.

“Many alumni have expressed an interest in getting remote access to electronic resources, and the Library is very pleased to be partnering with the Alumni Association to make this possible,” said Judith Nadler, Director and University Librarian.  “We are particularly pleased to be able to offer access to a broad range of important resources that will help alumni in many different fields begin their research.”
