About the Alumni Library Gateway

The WVU Libraries and the WVU Alumni Association offer online library resources for alumni through the Alumni Library Gateway. Alumni are a vital part of the University community. We have created the Gateway as a means of assisting you with your lifelong learning needs.

Two online databases are available to you: EBSCO Academic Search Alumni Edition, and EBSCO Business Source Alumni Edition. Alumni have free full-text access to more than 3,500 scholarly journals and magazines covering a wide range of disciplines.

Access to the Alumni Library Gateway Web site is limited to current members of the WVU Alumni Association that have registered for the service. Alumni Association members will be provided with registration instructions in their membership fulfillment packet. For more information, e-mail alumni@mail.wvu.edu or call 1-866-WVU-ALUM.

To learn more about membership in the WVU Alumni Association, visit: http://alumni.wvu.edu/membership/types/.

Alumni still need to purchase a WVU Libraries Borrowers Card to check out books or use computers in libraries on campus. Online access to the EBSCO Alumni Edition databases is available from off-campus computers only.
