Current students at Columbia University have access to many databases and journals to support their teaching and learning needs. After graduation, Columbia University Libraries continue to provide offsite-access to a number of databases and journals to support life-long learning endeavors.
To access these resources, alumni may need to re-activate their UNI or change their password on the Alumni UNI maintenance page.
See the full list of e-resources available to alumni here: https://library.columbia.edu/using-libraries/alumni.html.

In addition to these e-resources, alumni can register for an Alumni ID card at the Library Information Office at Butler Library to have in-person access to many of the Columbia University Libraries.
