Bryn Mawr Alumnae and Alumni Library Resources

Databases (subscribed; available only to alumnae / alumni)

Alumnae/i Relations and Development has moved to a new platform for alumnae/i to access subscription library resources (JSTOR, Project Muse, and Mango Languages). As of January 1, 2023, library resources will no longer be available through Athena's Web and you will need to request a new user registration at Your existing usernames and passwords for the specific databases remain the same. If you have any questions, please visit


Alums have access to these paid databases through the Alumnae Association website. Database access is provided by Bryn Mawr Library & Information Technology Services (LITS). Please note that alumnae/i only have off-campus access to the databases listed below. Alumnae/i can come to campus and use the libraries, and while on campus will have access to almost all BMC electronic resources.

When you visit the Alumnae Association page:

  • Choose Library Resources from the left-hand menu when you log in for the links to each database.
  • The library can't help you with your login, but after you've logged in, if you have problems or questions about using these databases, contact
