Research Databases

Hello - I'm going to be graduating at the end of the semester. Will I still be able to utilize the research databases after I'm done?

Thanks for your question.  Unfortunately, all of our database licenses are based on the number of current students, and they don't cover alumni. We don't have the funding to cover the over 10,000 AU alums for all of the databases that we offer. 

There are two general databases (Academic Search & Business Source) that provide an alumni version (somewhat less content than the regular version) free of charge which you can sign up for once you become an alumni.  From the AU website  Click on Alumni. You'll be asked to set up a log-in, then after you log-in, you'll be able to select Services for Alumni (the databases will be the last two choices.)
