New online resources for KU alumni and friends

Monday, July 28, 2014

Thanks to a partnership with KU Libraries, KU Alumni Association members now have access to more than 50,000 magazines, journals and index records—library resources for alumni and friends who wish to continue their professional and personal development.

Association members can access three databases within KU Libraries:

Academic Search Alumni Edition is a comprehensive database providing full-text for thousands of peer-reviewed journals and more than 13,780 indexed and abstract journals—as well scholarly magazines for general interest pursuits.

Business Source Alumni Edition includes publications in many areas of business as well as full-text sources from general periodicals, trade publications and top management journals. In addition, there are more than 29,000 full-text records, which include country economic reports, industry reports, market research reports, company profiles and more.

Business Book Summaries provides comprehensive, yet concise summaries for more than 1,800 of the top-rated business books from a wide range of important subject areas.

Lorraine Haricombe, dean of KU Libraries, says the expanded online access supports the libraries’ mission to advance discovery, innovation and learning for KU and beyond. “We actively pursue additional knowledge resources to add to the rich content we provide for Association members,” she said. “Our partnership with the Association broadens our efforts to equip alumni and friends with the scholarly tools they need to continue their lifelong exploration.”
