Access to the libraries is granted to any person age 16 or older upon presentation of photo identification. Visitors under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
Hopkins KnowledgetNET (HKNET) provides a collection of databases that have been licensed specifically for alumni use. HKNET is completely separate from the Johns Hopkins libraries’ electronic resources and collections. Johns Hopkins library database licenses have restrictions that allow only current students, faculty, and staff to access them, so remote access to these databases ends once you graduate.
To help address post-graduation access, the Alumni Association and the libraries have partnered to create Hopkins KnowledgeNET (HKNET), the Alumni Online Library. HKNET contains academic and popular journal articles, a comprehensive music encyclopedia, directories and more through certain databases licensed specifically for alumni access, as well as links to additional collections of online resources, digital libraries, and other Johns Hopkins publications. See a complete list of available databases in the box below.
HKNET is available to all graduates of Johns Hopkins University. To connect to HKNET, go to https://connect.jhu.edu/ and enter your JHED ID and password.
