Access Outside the Library and On Mobile Devices

Students, Faculty and Staff

To ensure full access to most online resources when you're not in the library, using a library computer:


  • Most online resources are available only to current students, faculty and staff.
  • Joining the UM alumni association provides access to select resources.
  • Learn more about library Services for Alumni.


  • Many licensed databases, online journals and full-text articles are available to visitors on selected (guest) computers inside our campus libraries.


  • Use the gateway search box, frequently used databases and Search Tools to access databases and full-text articles.
  • Use the gateway's Quick Links to ensure easy, full-text access to Google Scholar @ U-M and PubMed @ U-M citations.
  • You can bookmark database links for future access; copy the Search Tools "stable URL" entry (e.g. see Search Tools entry for PubMed).
