Can I access the databases after graduation?Laptop with papper next to it


Due to contractual restrictions, UMD Alumni do not have online access to the many proprietary databases offered through UMD's Kathryn A. Martin Library to current UMD Students, Faculty and Staff.  That is the bad news.   

The good news is you still have some access options.   You can visit the Kathryn A. Martin Library in person, sign up for a guest computer pass, and search most of our databases in the library on library computers.

You can discover that your local library has many databases, and with a library card from that library, you can access online many important databases.   Here are two examples:

Duluth Public Library

Hennepin County Library

If you are in the Twin Cities, you can visit the University of Minnesota Libraries, and access many of their databases from within their buildings:

University of Minnesota Twin Cities Business Library

Where ever you are residing in the United States,  look for online access via local public libraries, or in-person access options via local colleges and universities.

While Alumni cannot access the linked databases, our "Business Research Launch Pad" is available to you to remind you what resources are available for differing research needs.  Remember thousands of free websites are also listed on our Launch Pad.

If you have questions or are encountering problems, please contact me.
