How do I search your databases if I'm a UM alum or a non-affiliate?


Anyone can access our databases if they are physically present in a Library on the University of Michigan campus, and use one of the publicly accessible computers; our staff can provide assistance as needed. However, due to license restrictions, remote access is limited to currently affiliated faculty, students & staff.  The Alumni Association of the University of Michigan does provide remote access to a few of our resources to its members; click here to find out details.  For addtional information on access to Library services for Alumni, please visit the following URL:

In addition, many free online resources are included in our guide for the general public.
