How to get access

Who can get access

All current CU Boulder students, faculty members, and employees with an active CU IdentiKey can access a majority of Libraries-subscribed databases and online resources from an off-campus location. Please see our database terms of use for legal limitations on using these resources.

Alumni and public access to electronic resources

Off-campus access to our databases and online resources is restricted to current students, staff and faculty. Some resources do allow walk-in access for public patrons. Please contact our Ask A Librarian service for more information.
