The Brooklyn College Library's electronic resources (e.g. journals, ebooks, databases, etc.) are available to registered students, faculty, and staff when off-campus, including while abroad.
New for Fall 2021, to authenticate for remote access to Library databases you will be prompted to use your CUNYfirst Username and Password to log in (same credentials for logging into Blackboard). However, as links and webpages get updated, you may be prompted to log in using our old format (see below).
Students, faculty, and staff will all use this format to authenticate. Using Firefox as your browser is recommended.
The login takes you to a redirect page, and then the CUNY login page. See below for troubleshooting help.
Your Error: The username or password you entered was incorrect.
First, double-check that there are no typos and try re-entering your credentials ensuring that you included the @login.cuny.edu handle after your username. You can also click here and see if you can log in at Blackboard (opens in a new window).
Your Error: Unauthorized - Access to Brooklyn College library resources is limited to active Brooklyn College students and active & retired Brooklyn College employees.
If you are prompted to authenticate using the form below, you will need to follow the format provided on the page to log in.
