Alumni Can now Access New Library Databases

Now available to all members of the University at Albany Alumni Association are two new research databases. These new databases, which are provided by the Office of Library and Information Services, can be accessed remotely by anyone who is a member of the Alumni Association.

One of the new databases is Academic Search – Alumni Edition. This multidisciplinary database is intended to provide for the research needs of post-college professionals. Included in the database is full text access to over 3,000 journals, as well as indexing and abstracting for over 8,000 journals.

The other database now available to active members of the Alumni Association is Business Source – Alumni Edition. The key difference between this database and Academic Search is that while Academic Search is multidisciplinary, Business Search provides coverage in all areas of business. Designed specifically with the needs of the post-college business professional in mind, this database provides full text access to over 1,400 business magazines and journals.

It is important to note that in order to gain access to these databases, you must not only be an alumni of the University at Albany, but also a member of the Alumni Association. Please visit the University at Albany Alumni Online Community website for information on how to register for free with the Alumni Association and access the Alumni databases. For a complete list of databases and resources available to all alumni of the University at Albany, please visit the Alumni Services – Database List. Alumni still have the ability to borrow materials from the library and other services.
