Graduating students: access to online resources ends 45 days after graduation.
Access to the Miami University Libraries' online resources ends when you are no longer a current student, staff, or faculty member.
If you are a paying member of the Alumni Association, you may have access to Academic Search Alumni Edition and Business Source Alumni Edition. Contact the Miami University Alumni Association for details.
Miami University alumni may also obtain an Affiliated Patrons of the Libraries card by completing an application during business hours (Monday - Friday) in the Dean's Office (225 King Library) and by contributing a $25 tax deductible donation (cash or check) annually. This card does NOT provide off-site access to library databases.
As an Affiliated Patron, online databases and other electronic resources are available to you on site (from within a library on campus). E-resources are not available to Affiliated Patrons via remote access (from outside the library) due to license restrictions.
If you have urgent research needs after graduation and are working with or are being sponsored by a Miami University academic department, you may ask that department to request a University Courtesy Account for you. Courtesy Accounts allow you to access the Libraries' electronic resources. The Libraries cannot initiate, maintain, or renew Courtesy Account requests on your behalf; you must contact the department you are affiliated with and the Department's Dean or Department Chair will request or renew an account through IT Services for you.
