Alumni Services @ KSL

Do you want to continue your intellectual explorations after graduation?  Alumni can retain access to some of the online databases that they used as students.  While licensing restrictions do not allow access to all of the online resources that are available to current students, the KSL Alumni Online library provides access to a suite of research databases across many subject areas.

To obtain access to the KSL Online Library fill out this online registration form through the Alumni Office. 

After registration information is shared with publishers and access is granted, you will be mailed your unique log-in information. Welcome packet will arrive in approximately one business week. With this information, you can use the online resources from the convenience of your home or from wherever you have an Internet connection.

Speaker Graphic Testimonials

Valuable tools to do research on business information, history, leisure topics, science and technology advancements. It is convenient and available any time, anywhere - Wong ('85)

This service has allowed me to remain up to date on the latest thinking in business and has kept me linked to the University in a fashion that no other alumni service has - Franklin ('01)

Primary draw for me of the KSL Alum membership is access to full-text journals (as many as possible!). Without a university affiliation, it's exorbitantly expensive to keep up with the journals in my field - Frost ('08)
