Alumni & The Library

Graduated, but not done learning? The Wisconsin Alumni Association can help with that. Membership in WAA gives you access to online library services that will keep you reading and exploring all through life:

ProQuest Reseach Library offers an index of more than 2,000 periodicals, both academic and general interest, and covering nearly all areas of interest, including the arts, humanities, social sciences, sciences, health, and education. Over half of these journals are available in full text, so instant gratification can be yours!

Business your thing? ProQuest/ABI Inform may be more your style. It contains information from thousands of journals and magazines that focus on business issues and conditions (examples include Business Week, Forbes, and Fortune).

If you still can’t find exactly what you need or desire, the Ask a Reference Librarian service is the way to go. Association members have access to a real, live UW-Madison librarian via e-mail who can help locate hard-to-find content, and can even copy and e-mail a limited number of print articles from the library’s collection.

Happy Reading!
