Dear Members of the Yale community,
This email outlines the Yale Library policies governing access to electronic
resources and general borrowing privileges.
Current Yale faculty, staff and students have access to the Library’s
electronic resources, on campus through the Yale network or off campus by using
the Yale VPN connection. Information about VPN is available at http://www.library.yale.edu/about/offcampus.html.
Alumni and others may use the Library’s electronic resources in the Library’s
on-campus locations, but due to contractual limitations, do not have remote
access. One exception is JSTOR, a digital archive of more than 1,000 academic
journals. Yale alumni can register for access to JSTOR by going to
http://www.aya.yale.edu/content/jstor-access. Of course, alumni and others
have access to the stacks and may borrow materials from the Library; in some
cases small fees are charged for these services. Full details are available at
For more information about Library policies, collections, or other resources,
please contact the Library at its on-line “help desk” at http://ask.library.yale.edu/.
