Q: I've just graduated. Do I still get access to ejournals?
Answered by: Laura Sider

For all Yale alumni:

After you have graduated, the library cannot grant access to most electronic resources due to license restrictions.

The Yale Alumni Association provides access to JSTOR and HeinOnline journals (law journals). To get access you must register with Yale's Alumni Association:

  • Go to the Alumni Office website
  • Click on "My Profile" and login
  • Select "Online Library Resources" to access JSTOR and HeinOnline

For a list of other ways to access electronic resources after graduation, visit

For recent graduates: 

You will retain VPN and off-campus access to the library's electronic resources in the months immediately following graduation. To use the library's electronic resources on public terminals in Sterling Memorial Library, you may register for library access at the Sterling Memorial Library service desk.

For Divinity School graduates:

Visit the Divinity Library website for information about access to electronic resources after graduation.
