1 Does UM have a complete list of all the academic journals to which the university subscribes? It would be incredibly convenient to be able to quickly navigate past paywalls on sites like PNAS, Science Magazine, and Nature when teaching English 107 classes for the College of Engineering or RSAMaS. Please do e-mail me if you can help me out!

d.roose@miami.eduFor e-journal coverage information, select the “E-journals” link on the Library home page.  Then within uSearch, search for a specific e-journal by title.  Clicking the “Find Online” button will then display our online coverage for that title, along with all available access links.

cgowing@miami.eduHi -  All UM alumnus are eligible to access two specialized research databases, Academic Search Alumni Edition and Business Source Alumni Edition.    Both require a special username and password, obtainable via the  UM Alumni Association.   You can get more information about this services, as well as a link to obtain a password via the UM Alumni Association at:   http://library.miami.edu/patron/alumnus/

Our license agreements prohibit the Libraries from providing alumni remote access to all of our licensed electronic resources, however these two special subscriptions have been created to allow some continued access to electronic content for alumni.    If you live in the area, you can gain entrance to Richter Library by showing your UM Alumni Cane Card or Alumni Association Card, then obtain a temporary code to use our public computers to access all of the Libraries' electronic resources.
