Your Voice

"I just completed my master’s thesis in Wildlife Biology (hooray!). My study species was the Green Heron. Through Alkek, I had unlimited access to all the electronic resources I needed - things like Birds of North America Online and pretty much every scientific journal. This was absolutely vital to my success and sanity as a grad student."

Amanda Moore
