  • Discovery of resources through our main library search, including full-text resources available to you in ProQuest Central and open access.
  • Access to open source online journals and ebooks from repositories such as:

Students lose full access to library resources the month they complete their program. After that, they are given alumni privileges, which includes ongoing remote access to ProQuest Central, SAGE Knowledge, and SAGE Premier. Some other databases are available to alumni from CityU sites.

We would love to provide alumni with continued access to all our online databases. Unfortunately, vendor licenses almost always restrict such access, and alumni-specific databases generally lack full-text content.

Note that many of your favorite databases may be available to you at no cost through your local public library, or for a fee through your local academic library.
