Alumni receive access to online academic resources


UChicago alumni may now connect to the EBSCO Academic Search, Business Source, and eBook databases via the Alumni & Friends Online Community.

EBSCO Academic Search provides the full text of articles from more than 3,350 academic journals, as well as indexing and abstracting for more than 8,200, covering nearly every area of academic study. EBSCO Business Source includes the full text of some 1,540 business publications, from peer-reviewed academic journals to popular magazines. eBooks are also available.

These new services, provided by the Alumni Association, address longstanding requests by alumni for access to scholarly resources that they were accustomed to using on campus via the Library’s domain-wide license. It is hoped that alumni will find the service useful when conducting independent academic or professional research.

Sign-in to the Alumni & Friends Online Community using your CNET ID to access these resources and more.
