UMass Amherst Library Access

Updated Feb. 2017

This is a very helpful tip for new students and those who did not know about it. As IMS students we have access to UMass Amherst library. They have a very extensive online catalog of journals and it is easier to find and article and download the full text immediately than in UMassD library.

In order to obtain a username and password, please follow the instructions for Non-Employee, Non-Student (NENS) Application on UMass Amherst. You will need a signature from the SMAST Dean.
