Who Can Access Kresge Databases?
Current Ross Students, Faculty, and Staff
If you are a current Ross School of Business student, faculty or staff member, most of our databases are available for you to access from your home, office, or from any Internet connection. To use these databases outside the Business School, you will be asked to authenticate with your iMpact username and password.
If you are a former Ross student, you have access to some Ross resources. You will be asked to authenticate with your iMpact login information. If you do not have an iMpact login, or do not remember your username or password, view the alumni community's instructions on setting up iMpact access, particulary the Login FAQ's on this page.
If you are a University of Michigan faculty, student or staff member not affiliated with the Ross School of Business, you can still use many of our resources remotely.
Use of information in these resources is governed by the Ross
Community Values and Academic
Honor Code, as well as individual database vendor agreements
as noted below. Kresge Library contracts with vendors to allow faculty,
students, and staff to use these subscription databases for
educational, personal and non-commercial purposes. As part of the
agreement, both copyright and contract law apply.
According to the "fair use" clauses of U.S. copyright law, you
may cite short excerpts in papers and reports for classroom and other
academic uses if you also cite the source of the information (e.g.
journal article). You may not use entire works for this purpose. When
using information from these databases, properly cite and credit the
source. If you have any questions about citing a particular resource,
please contact us.
