Alumni Access to Databases

Only current Miami students, faculty, and staff can access the all of the Univeristy Libraries' databases from off-campus because our cost to subscibe to each database is determined by the number of students we have currently enrolled.

Alumni who are dues paying members of the Miami Alumni Association have access to Wall Street Journal and some EbscoHost databases. More information about these resources and login links are located below. For more information about all of the benefits of becoming a dues paying member, please see the Miami Alumni Association website. You can also use this online form to sign up or to renew your membership. Please note that library access will be available once your membership has been processed, which takes 2 business days.

If you need help, have difficulty logging into the system, or are not sure if you're a dues-paying member, please contact the Alumni Association by e-mail at, or call them toll free at (866) MUALUMS (682-5867).
