As the university is a large and complex organization, there are numerous categories of individuals who are entitled to access our licensed resources by virtue of their research or teaching, but who don’t fit the typical profile of a faculty member with an employee number. These include visiting professors; individuals with research grants; conference delegates; volunteers, etc.
For many of these circumstances, Information Technology provides ‘sponsored accounts’ (available for one year) for these individuals. Individuals need to be sponsored by a dean, director, or administrative delegate in order to qualify for a sponsored account.
- Visit your library to access our resources locally. We have locations on campus and in partner facilities.
- Sign up for a SmartLibrary card.
- If you are unsure if you are eligible, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
