The Library has licensed a set of resources specifically for Alumni access. Use of these databases and their content is intended for personal enrichment of our Alumni and not for commercial use. Alumni are welcome to access any of the freely available resources on the main Library website; however, please note that access to other commercial databases, most e-journals, book borrowing, and document delivery is restricted to current NPS faculty, students and staff only. Please consult your local library for assistance obtaining items outside the full-text offerings of our Alumni Access resources.
