NC LIVE Databases
North Carolina Area Health Education Centers
Can alumni access the library's online databases, articles, e-books, etc. from outside the library?
I'm sorry, no. In their licensing contracts for universities, database vendors limit access to current students, faculty, and staff.
Most of the vendors also sell their content to others, and want to preserve those lucrative markets.
What if I'm a Friend of the Library?
While Friends are able to check out books, they still can't access library databases from off campus. This page describes borrowing privileges for Friends of the Library and non-UNCG patrons.
Can alumni access the library's databases from within the library?
Yes, for most databases. We provide guest computers for alumni researchers. These computers do not have Microsoft Office.
Is there alternative access for databases?
Yes, NC LIVE and NC AHEC. See the links on the left for details.
I'm a student about to graduate. When do I lose off-campus access?
When your Genie account is closed out. Off-campus authentication is run through Genie. Contact 6-TECH (336/256-8324) to ask about the status of your Genie account.
