We're very sorry, but database vendors do not allow us to offer access to anyone but currently-enrolled students and current faculty. The licenses specifically forbid alumni access. If you are not in the University's administrative system as a current student, you cannot be authenticated for off-campus use of our electronic resources.
We do welcome you to come in and use the library again, however! With an alumni ID, you are welcome to check out our circulating books, use the paper or microform collection, and use the Alumni laptop. For more on Alumni Library Services, see this webpage.
If you live in Massachusetts, there are several databases available via your public library system, many from home. To find your local library, put your zip code or town name in the search box at the upper right of that same webpage.
