Off-campus access to library resources is typically restricted by our database licenses to current students, faculty, and staff of JHU. To help address post-graduation access, the Alumni Association and the libraries have partnered to create Hopkins KnowledgeNet, which is the Alumni Online Library. 

This online library is free to all JHU alumni. You can access academic journals, e-books, and more.  If you have questions, please call the Alumni Office at 410-516-0363 or 1-800-JHU-JHU1 (1-800-548-5481).

If you're in Baltimore, you may use materials and databases on-site in the library. Please bring an official photo ID to enter the library.

If you'd like to borrow physical materials, alumni can purchase library privileges at a discounted rate of $100 for access to Eisenhower and LSC materials and $200 for access to materials at all Hopkins libraries. Payment accepted via cash and check.

  1. It seems that there is no available link to any databases at KnowledgeNET page.
    --------------------
    That's correct, April, there isn't. This is because you must be registered as a Hopkins alum, and log into their system first. This note is on the KnowledgeNET page: "Please note: Hopkins KnowledgeNET is only accessible through the alumni.jhu.edu account system. You will be required to log in as a first-time user on alumni.jhu.edu to access Hopkins KnowledgeNET." For more information about how to do this, please call them at 410-516-0363. Thanks for your question, and best wishes.

  2. I'm registered and logged in to the alumni website and still see no KnowledgeNET log in link or field.
    Please call 410-516-0363 or 1-800-JHU-JHU1 for help with their system.

  3. What constitutes an official photo ID?
    If you're in Baltimore, you may use materials and databases on-site in the library. Please bring an official photo ID to enter the library.

    A driver's license, passport, or state i.d. card would qualify. If you are a full-time student, your current student i.d. is also OK.
