Retired Employee and Emeritus Faculty Access

Retirees will soon need to use their social media accounts to access research databases provided by WVU Libraries. Retirees using a email account can link their account by selecting the Microsoft option and completing the identity verification with their email.

Emeritus faculty and staff will continue to log in using the WVU Employees/Students button.

Sign In

First-time sign-in instructions:

  1. Go to the WVU Libraries Databases Portal.
  2. Select Google, Microsoft, Facebook, or LinkedIn and sign in with your personal account credentials.
  3. Once signed in, click Link account.
  4. Verify your identity and click Submit. (You only have to do this once.)
  5. Click on the button for the database you’d like to access.

If you need help, call the ITS Service Desk at 304-293-4444. If you have questions about your Retirees Association membership, contact or call 304-293-3389.
