Welcome to the Alumni Library Portal of databases and other resources for Virginia Tech alumni. 

Licensed databases and Summon


These databases are licensed for use by Virginia Tech alumni through the Alumni Library Portal Sign In proxy.

Alumni Library Portal Sign In

Alumni Library Portal Sign In is the mechanism the library uses to authenticate alumni to access licensed resources. The Alumni Library Portal includes links to many freely accessible databases that provide journal articles, ebooks, conference papers, data sets, and more, but a few licensed databases require authentication prior to access.
