Our subscription databases are licensed based on the number of current students only and the licenses do not allow for off-campus access by alumni. Along with the Alumni Office, we have considered ways to allow access to alumni that would cover the additional cost of licensing for this group but found no workable solution.
Fortunately, there are several ways for you to access electronic content such as scholarly articles. You are welcome to use most of our electronic resources from within the library. If you live far from DU, ask your local research library what services and access they offer for community members. Most public universities allow the public to use electronic resources from within the library.
Finally, public libraries license many databases, including those with scholarly content, for in-library and home use by their patrons as well as offering some level of interlibrary loan service for requesting books and articles. Contact your local public library for more information on these services.
