Access for Library Resources by Alumni

Published by Dipa Barua

Q: I graduated from SFU this past Oct 2016. I know as an alumna I have access to various library resources like the access to various research journals. Do you have a list of all the journals alumni have access to? Specifically biological research journals like Cancer Research, Cell, Nature Immunology, Molecular Cancer Therapeutics, etc. Also, how long do alumni have access to these journals and library resources? Does access expire after a certain number of years after graduation? Thank you so much!

A: Hello,


Your current SFU computer ID will still function for a number of months after graduation so you will probably have access to all databases remotely for a few more months. After that you will go to Alumni status. Your Alumni status does not expire. 

Please also remember that any member of the public can access ALL the databases from computer workstations within any of the 3 SFU campus libraries. 

If you have further questions please feel free to contact me directly at smackena@sfu.ca.


Take care,
