Alumni Essentials


Access to Library Materials & Services

At this time, access to library facilities is restricted due to University of Miami guidelines and only visitors with Cane ID are permitted. We hope to allow for Alumni to visit our physical facilities in the coming months.

Information and Research Services

Reference services is available remotely via Ask a Librarian. Interlibrary Loan services are not available to Alumni.

Research Database for Alumni

The library is pleased to offer Academic Search Alumni Edition, a specialized research database for Alumni. This database requires the use of a special username and password, obtainable via the Alumni Association. Please contact alumni@miami.edu for assistance. Please note that your CaneID username and password will *not* work to access this resource.

Academic Search Alumni Edition is designed for the research needs of the post-college professional. The database provides full text for nearly 1,350 publications as well as indexing and abstracting for nearly 8,000 publications. Academic Search Alumni Edition also includes valuable peer-reviewed full text journals, offering critical information from many sources.
