If you register as a JCU Alumni you will get free access to the ProQuest database and the National Geographic Archive 1888-1994.

Alumni access to these resources is through the JCU Alumni site (see details below), not through the JCU Library page.

To access online resources:

  1. Register and log in to the Alumni site (this page has instructions if you forget your password or ID)
  2. Select Alumni Benefits
  3. Scroll down and select Library
  4. You can now access either the ProQuest database or the National Geographic Archive
  5. To access ProQuest, select Register for ProQuest service
  6. Read Terms and Conditions
  7. If you agree to abide by them select Yes from the Agree to Library terms and conditions dropdown
  8. Click Update
  9. Click Search Proquest
  10. You are now at the ProQuest Home Page, enter your search


Another option is to take advantage of Open Access resources. You can filter in One Search to view only Open Access results and Google Scholar will often provide links to free full text content.
