Why do my alums see a version of Atla research tools that is different than what is offered at my library?
Your institution may have chosen to offer different research tools from the Atla on EBSCOhost, making the alum user experience different than the library version. For example, your library might subscribe to Atla Religion Database (index) with Atlas (full-text), but they may only offer alums access to Atlas (full-text).
