Q. I'm an alumni, so can I get access to PU databases and other library resources?
Because of licensing restrictions, Purdue University Libraries cannot give alumni access to subscription electronic resources. Some Purdue e-Pubs: < http://docs.lib.purdue.edu/ >are open-access and do not require a Purdue career account. If you plan to visit the PU campus you can go to a library that has visitor computers and access most of the databases that way. Please ask any library desk for more assistance if needed. You can also obtain a borrower's card if you want to check out materials. Finally, if you're still in Indiana, you may want to check out INSPIRE, which is a virtual library available to all Indiana residents. Some databases and e-journal/magazine content are provided there as well.
NEW *****PU Alumni have the option when they join PU Alumni Association to purchase the level that includes a research database in their yearly membership. The Professional level includes the research database, ProQuest Research Database. This database includes thousands of periodicals at their fingertips.
