Due to license restrictions, the databases are available off-campus only to current Ship students, faculty, and staff.

Alumni (and Pennsylvania residents) can use the databases from computers in Lehman Library with an Alumni (or Community) Card. The card will allow for a guest login, available at the Circulation Desk.

Please see the various types of borrowing cards available on the "Library Services: Circulation: Local Community Serivces" page, linked below, for more details.

"As a service to university alumni who are area residents, Lehman Library offers borrowing privileges through an Alumni Community Card. Applicants must have an undergraduate or graduate degree from Shippensburg and must present identification in the form of a valid driver's license"
