Hi - 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.
