No access to UBC Library Resources via CWL
Regent CWL no longer have access to UBC library's online resources.

To access any UBC electronic resources Regent students need to use their UBC Card barcode and pin number.

At the UBC site, when you click on an electronic resource (article) you will be directed to a new log in page. Scroll down and use the 'standard library login'.

Unfortunately, the way UBC has set up their login process once you log in you will need to find the article again and then click on it.

Should Regent alumni extend CWL once expired?
Short answer:
No.

Long answer:
1. Regent CWL does not allow access to UBC databases. Even if it did, companies like EBSCO would not allow UBC to extend database access to alumni. It is a contractual limitation that only current students staff and faculty have access. UBC cannot even extend this to their alumni. 

2. UBC wireless have visitor account that don't need CWL.
