LOOP (Library Online Orientation Program): Off-Campus Access

Welcome to the LOOP!

Remote Access

Online library tools, including OneSearch and article databases, can be accessed from off campus by current BC students.

Start by logging in from the Library's homepage. In the lower left corner is an orange house that says remote access: undefined

Click "Authenticate from off campus," and log in with your CUNY credentials (CUNYFirst username and password). Once you've logged in successfully, the lock turns green, the text says "you are authenticated," and you will have off-campus access to all of our electronic resources. 


OneSearch is the search box on the Library's homepage.  Use OneSearch to find books, articles, reports, images, etc.

When using OneSearch from off-campus, full-text access to e-books and articles will be provided after you have authenticated using your BC EmpID and password (see detailed information below).


You have the option of choosing a database from an alphabetical list or by subject.

Databases (like JSTOR) that can be accessed from off campus will have at least one of the following icons next to them:

     CUNY Access:

    To use these databases, click on the blue CUNY icon and log in with your CUNY login credentials (CUNYFirst username and password).

     Brooklyn College Access:

    Databases with the lock icon can only be accessed by members of the Brooklyn College community. You log in with your CUNY login credentials (CUNYFirst username and password).


Access to the Brooklyn College electronic resources is limited to active students, staff, and faculty at Brooklyn College. Professors emeriti may also access library e-resources. Authentication is via CUNY Login.


If you are having trouble authenticating, please see the Library's Remote Access Troubleshooting guide.
