Extending Graduate Student Access to Online Library Resources

Library resources are available to be used remotely only for currently-registered students, faculty, and staff. Occasionally, students may be finishing a master's project but not be enrolled in a credit-bearing course. Or, they may be taking a "break" from school for a personal reason. When this happens, the student will be unable to remotely access library resources. This frequently happens and can be a frustrating experience for the student who is legitimately working towards finishing their project/thesis/dissertation.

There is a work-around for this problem. Graduate students who register through the Graduate School (this includes the SoN) and who are working on a thesis or dissertation but are not currently enrolled in courses, may still be eligible to receive full library privileges.

The student may obtain borrowing privileges by registering for the zero-credit, zero-fee, non-graded registration option (GRAD 999) offered through the Graduate School. Once registered, a graduate student’s University accounts will be reactivated.

Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
