Can alumni access library databases after graduation?

SAIS alumni are welcome to use library databases in the Library, but due to licensing restrictions, off-campus access to the full range of JHU library databases ceases after graduation. However, the JHU Alumni Association provides (free of charge) access to Hopkins KnowledgeNET, a virtual library designed for JHU alumni members.  KnowledgeNET offers access to fulltext  academic journals, reference materials, and  additional collections of online resources.  

To sign up and/or learn more about available resources, go to Hopkins KnowledgeNET and log in as a first time user.  Note that there may be a time lag of 6 weeks or so between graduation and the date the Alumni Office has your name on file.

For more information about alumni access to the SAIS Library, see the Library's Information for SAIS Alumni
