Library: Off-Campus Access to Databases

Directions for Off-Campus Access to Databases

Below is a brief tutorial demonstrating how to access QCC Library databases.

 

Off-campus access to most, if not all, of the QCC Library databases is restricted to currently enrolled students, faculty, and staff members of QCC with an activated OneCard / TigerCard school ID in the CUNY library system. Visit the Library Check Out Desk to make sure your OneCard  / TigerCard school ID has been activated for the current semester. 

When you are off campus and click on a link to a database on the Library's website, you will be prompted to enter your 14-digit Library number which is on your OneCard / TigerCard school ID. This number will appear either just below, just above the barcode or on the back of your ID.

 Onecard ID version 1                   Onecard ID version 2

 

If you encounter any problems or have questions, when the Library is open:

  • call the Library Circulation Desk at (718) 631-6227,
  • Ask a Librarian in the box on the right if Chat is active, or
  • visit the Library check out desk.

If the Library is closed, email askref@qcc.cuny.edu, and we'll get back to you as soon as possible when the Library reopens.

If you need an ID card, please go to Room LB23.
