Resources Available to Alumni

Graduating from JMU doesn’t mean you lose access to all of your favorite research resources!  JMU Libraries provide many resources to alumni to help in future research and career development.  Take a look!

Resources for Alumni

Most resources available to JMU alumni are open access and freely available on the internet.  Please click here for a list of open access resources that are recommended by our librarians.

We also offer open access educational resources (OER) for classroom use. These include textbooks, tutorials, handouts, quizzes, videos, etc. Click here to view a help guide detailing OER use and services offered by JMU.

UPDATE: Access and support for RefWorks, a web-based citation management tool, will end on October 1, 2020. You will be able to export your RefWorks citations until November 30, 2020. If you have questions, please contact Resource Management.

As an alternative, try Zotero. JMU Libraries recommends Zotero as an alternative to RefWorks, and we will offer support for this tool going forward. Zotero is a free-to-use, open source citation manager that has an intuitive interface and offers accessible research collaboration.
