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 https://engage.brynmawr.edu/library. Your existing usernames and passwords for the specific databases remain the same. If you have any questions, please visit https://www.brynmawr.edu/inside/offices-services/alumnaei-relations-development/connecting/services-benefits.
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:
Alumnae/i of both undergraduate and graduate programs can borrow books from the Bryn Mawr libraries for 4 weeks at a time with up to 2 renewals. Alumnae/i borrowing does not include EZ-Borrow or interlibrary loan.
To request borrowing privileges, fill out this form. General questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org. For questions about obtaining privileges or your existing library account, please email email@example.com.
