Alumni have a number of options for accessing UBC Library e-resources.
UBC Library has secured Alumni access to many e-resources. Details are available here. Alumni with a CWL will automatically be able to access these resources using OpenAthens.
For Alumni without a CWL, please contact the Library to request an OpenAthens access account. Once you have an OpenAthens access account, there are two options for logging in:
In addition, alumni UBC provides free access to the EBSCO database. UBC alumni can access this directly from the app or from this website.
Alumni are invited to access other library e-resources by visiting a library branch in person. Many Alumni may use CWL to log in to a computer at the library to access e-resources. For Alumni without a CWL, guest passes are available. Please check the current hours for library branches.
Emeriti may log in to UBC Library e-resources via OpenAthens using CWL. More information on Library services for Emeriti is available.
