Other ways to remotely access databases

If a patron is having trouble with remote access (e.g., they have a new ID card that isn't in the system yet), there are other options for getting to databases, though not necessarily all the ones our library subscribes to:
  • Access the core set of databases that all CUNY libraries have via the E-Journals & Reference Databases page on the CUNY Office of Library Services page (a Social Security Number or a library ID number may be used to authenticate)
  • Access library databases from one of the local public libraries using a library card
  • Access databases from the New York State Library using a NY state driver's license or DMV non-driver photo ID.
