The short answer is no. The subscription license agreements libraries make with online resource providers are based on number of full-time enrollment of students. Expanding our number of users to include alumni would be financially prohibitive. However, many states have public library systems which provide access to library resources for all residents of that state; these services are paid for by tax dollars. Kentucky residents have access to a selected set of resources through a state-funded program called Kentucky Virtual Library, linked to below.

Berea and EKU also accept walk-in patrons, including alumni and those who are not affiliated with the institution(s) in any way. If a person is in the library building, he or she has access to online library resources.
