There hasn't been much activity on this list in response to Marianne's message. This might be because there have been a couple of sets of discussions here, and one not that long ago. For those who wish to review prior discussions on this or any topic, please check the liblicense-l archives at: http://www.library.yale.edu/~llicense/index.shtml Look along the top bar that helps you to search the list archives. Click on it and input the term "alumni". You will retrieve some 60+ hits, of which at least the first half are relevant and useful. The listings allow you to click directly on those messages. I note that Marianne asks if anyone has actually made alumni access work in any way. This is a good question, as I'm not aware that we've discussed any actual implementations of alumni access on liblicense-l. Perhaps no one has been able to effect it? Let's hear from you.

I have not checked specific license agreements yet, because details on which databases they would want access to have not been discussed. There are obviously various ways of doing this, but our Alumni Association proposed one way, namely to piggyback onto our licenses, some of which are consortial. What I wanted to ask this group is: whether this question has come up for any of you what potential models for access might be use in your institution whether anyone has encountered licenses specifically restricting alumni any other advice or information you may have on this issue.
