Regrettably, alumni may not [successfully] use their BU login to access databases off-campus.  This is due to strict (and necessary) adherence to vendors' contracts which are based upon FTE for pricing purposes, and allowing alumni to access databases after graduation would essentially deprive these database vendors of potential customers.  For example, CCH Intelliconnect (a tax research database) is free to students during their time at BU.  CCH is hopeful that these students will grow accustomed to professional and continued use of their product, and subscribe to their database after graduation, entering the professional world.

Please keep in mind that you are welcome to visit the Library itself and use the databases on-site, just not off-campus.
