Your alumni card enables you to access the NJIT Libraries in person and use our online Research Service for Alumni.

By contract, remote access to the NJIT Libraryies' indexes, databases, and electronic journals is available only to current students, faculty and staff, although you are certainly welcome to come in and use these resources on-site at the Van Houten or Littman Libraries.

However there are many useful sources that are available for use without subscription or institutional affiliation. We have assembled a select list of these here.
