This is something that commonly happens to graduate students working on their dissertation or thesis. You're not technically enrolled as a student and our system turns off your library access. Unfortunately, at this time there is no easy way to get around this. You may need to come to campus to do your literature searches until we are able to resolve the problem.

The Registrar's office suggests that Doctoral and PhD students enroll in CONT.7010 Continued Matriculation (Doctoral candidates). This costs $85 but does not give you library access at this time. 

The library suggests going directly to your faculty advisor to let them know the problem. We are trying to resolve this and it will be helpful for campus administrators to hear from faculty advisors with support on changing the campus policy.
