Q. Can I access databases and other online resources at the other Five Colleges?

Each of the Five Colleges (Smith, Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Holyoke and UMass/Amherst) maintains separate online subscriptions that can only be accessed from that campus.

Off-campus access for each institution is limited to the current students, faculty and staff of that institution.

The only exceptions are:

  • You are registered for a course at another Five College campus.
  • The link to the resource indicates “FC” (Five Colleges) indicates a resource anyone in the Five Colleges can access.

Visit our Other Libraries and Catalogs page for links to hours and information for each of the other Five Colleges.
