Find out how to use the Library as a Massey graduate. Access article databases, ebooks and reference resources, and search using Discover.

Logging in

Once you’ve signed up for an alumni membership, you can log in to access:

  • Discover
  • the library’s subscribed electronic resources including article databases, online journals and ebooks
  • MyLibrary.

To log in, follow the instructions the library emailed to you when you signed up, or read about logging in and get help and troubleshooting tips.

You don’t have access to all of the online journals, ebooks, and databases you had as an enrolled student. Access is determined by publisher licences.

Use the search box here to:

  • find and request print books
  • connect to full-text articles and ebooks.

Note that Discover search boxes elsewhere on the website don’t work for alumni members – you have to use this one. We suggest you bookmark this page.

Use MyLibrary to view and renew the print books you’ve checked out.
