Access to Online Resources

In 2020, retirees will see changes to what they can access from off campus in terms of library online journals. When a date is confirmed we will update this page.

Retirees will still have full access to online journals from on campus, either by using a public computer in the library, or on their own device from anywhere on campus.

Faculty members/librarians with emeritus status will retain the same access they’ve always had; retirees with whom colleges have made arrangements with will also retain their access.

The Directory of Open Access Journals service contains free, full text, scientific and scholarly journal articles.

The Atrium, the University of Guelph institutional repository, contains free, full text, scholarly University of Guelph publications.
