Library: Off-Campus Access to Databases

Off-Campus Access to Databases

Off-campus access to most of the QCC Library databases is restricted to currently enrolled students, faculty, and staff members of QCC with an activated TigerCard school ID in the CUNY library system. Visit the Library Check Out Desk to make sure your 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 the back of yourTigerCard school ID.

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

  • Visit or call the Library Circulation Desk at (718) 631-6227, or
  • Chat with a librarian if the chat window is active

If the Library is closed, email, 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 LB 02.
