2. To get to the Library’s website, you can Google “brooklyn college library” or use the URL:

3. For off-campus access to the Library’s resources, click on the “Remote Access / Login from off-campus” icon (the orange house) located along the bottom of the Library’s website:


4. Log in with your User ID and password.

              User ID: EmpID

              Password: FLMM/DD/YY (First and Last initials, six digit DOB, include slashes)

FL = your CUNYfirst official First and Last initials (capitalized)
MM/DD/YY = your 6-digit birthday with the SLASHES
Example: If your name is Jalil Doe and your birthday is November 21, 1998, your password would be JD11/21/98



If you are certain you are entering the correct information and still cannot log in, please call Brooklyn College’s ITS help desk immediately in order to get the issue resolved: 718-951-4188 or 718-951-4501, or send an email to

If you have been able to log in to library resources in the past, but suddenly cannot, what most likely needs to happen is that your IP address needs to be cleared (this just happens sometimes!). Please go to and get your IPV4 and then send your IP address to netgroup @ and ask them to clear it.
