WAA Alumni Access to Licensed Library Resources at UW-Madison
Access to our electronic databases is limited according to the license agreements we sign with our vendors. Our licenses do NOT allow access to the licensed resources via the UW-Madison libraries web site. In some cases, electronic resources are 'free' and are accessible from off-campus. So alumni who want access to our licensed resources have two options:
- Visit a UW-Madison library. Being "on-site" you would have access just like a UW-Madison faculty, staff or student. This of course isn't practical for many of our alumni
- Join the Wisconsin Alumni Association (WAA). WAA provides access to a small subset of licensed resources for members. More information here: http://www.uwalumni.com/membership/benefits/library/
WAA members have access to the ProQuest Research Library and ProQuest ABI/Inform databases, including any full text that might be in those databases. In addition, the library will send you copies of articles from journals that we own in paper format on campus. This is a service offered by WAA. This article is provided as a courtesy and as general information.
If you are a WAA member and are having difficulty finding resources, contact WAA Member Services for more information.
