Veterinary Medicine - Alumni Resources: E-Resources

Alumni Access to Penn Libraries Electronic Resources

Due to license restrictions, nearly all electronic resources are available only to current Penn Students & Staff, or to on-campus use.

On-Campus Access at Penn Libraries

To use computers in the Vet Library or other Penn Libraries, alumni must have (1) an Alumni PennCard and (2) a 'Credential' for logging in.  The Credential must be requested at Van Pelt Library on the same day access is required. Credentials are given on request each day to the first 10 alumni and provide single-day access to the public computers and the library's collection of e-resources.  

For more information about library resources for alumni at all Penn Libraries see our general Alumni Services page

Remote Access to Penn Libraries Electronic Resources

The Penn Libraries provide alumni access to some general interest full-text library-licensed e-resources for personal, non-commercial use. All users are expected to abide by University policies regarding acceptable use. Some of the Alumni databases provide access to several veterinary and human medicine journals. However, many include a one-year embargo limiting access to recently published material.

Your Local Public Library

Public libraries often offer databases from vendors like EBSCO and Gale that cover some of the veterinary literature and offer very limited full text, usually embargoed several years.
