Start by logging in from the Library's homepage. In the lower left corner is an orange house that says remote access:
Click "log in from off campus," and log in with your BC EmpID and password (shown below). Once you've logged in successfully, the lock turns green, the text says "you are logged in," 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:
To use these databases, click on the blue CUNY icon and enter the barcode that is on the back of your activated and validated Brooklyn College (or other CUNY) ID card. If you're having difficulty logging in this way, you may need to activate your barcode with the Library at the Circulation Desk.
Brooklyn College Access:
Databases with the lock icon can only be accessed by members of the Brooklyn College community. To authenticate your affiliation with the College, you will be asked to provide your BC email login credentials. The information below explains this further.
Brooklyn College Authentication
On the Login page, you will be asked to enter your Brooklyn College email ID and password to access subscription electronic resources from off campus.
Brooklyn College Credentials
For currently-enrolled BC students, use the following information when signing in:
FL = your CUNYfirst official First and Last initials (upper case)
MM/DD/YY = your 6-digit birthday with “/” separators
Example: If your name is Jalil Doe and your birthday is June 1, 1998, your password would be JD06/01/98
