BMCC Library Databases

Off campus access is the same username and password that you use for your BMCC e-mail.

Don’t know your username?

It is the same as your full email address including the @stu.bmcc.cuny.edu. For most students the part before the @ symbol is firstname.lastname

For example your email address would look like this: jane.doe@stu.bmcc.cuny.edu

If you have not set up an account or need to reset the password, go to Account Self Service via the BMCC portal.

  • Fill out all the personal information and click submit.
  • Create a password and click submit.
  • You will be taken to a page that shows just the part of your BMCC email before the @ symbol or jane.doe.  Remember to enter jane.doe@stu.bmcc.cuny.edu when logging in to a library database! 
  • Write down your user name and password and click submit.

Still having trouble?

  • If you still can’t log on, try CUNY Databases or contact the Student Helpdesk in person (S141) or by phone (212.220.8379).
  • Faculty and staff can call extension 8379 for assistance.
