      Dear Ellen

      Sorry to hear that you’ve faced refusal.
      As an alumna of Macquarie University, you have free lifetime access to the Library and some of our databases.

      To gain access to this free service, you will need to sign up on our Alumni Benefits webpage. Click library access and it will take you to the registration form to give you both borrowing privileges and database access. You will receive an automatic email with further instruction to create your login.

      Please let me know if you have any issues signing up.

    I graduated BA 5th May 1989.
    I taught in the Law School from 1975 to 1989 and in Business Law from 1989 to 1999

    I would like to be able to access journal articles, especially in history.

    I am always met with a refusal becuse I do not belong to a recognised institution.

    Can this be rectified with LibMQ?
