Off Campus Access to the Library's Electronic Resources

There are two ways to access databases from off campus:

Off Campus? Login here
Watch Logging in from Off-Campus video for help.

BMCC Databases

Off campus access is the same username and password used for PC login, wireless network access, student e-mail, and the BMCC Portal.

Don't know your username?

It is the same as the first part of your BMCC e-mail address. For most students, your username is your “firstname.lastname”.
Example: toni.morrison

If you have not set up a password or need to reset it, go to the BMCC Portal.

  • Click the link Account Password and Help.
  • Fill out all the personal information and click submit.
  • Choose a password that is at least 8 characters long and click submit.
  • You will be taken to a page that shows your BMCC username.
  • Write down your user name and password and click submit.

Still having trouble?

  • The password reset is available through the BMCC Portal page.
  • If you still can't log on, try CUNY Databases or contact the Student Helpdesk in person (room S141) or by phone (212-220-8379).
  • Faculty and staff can call extension 8379 for assistance.

CUNY Databases

  • Be sure your library card number on your BMCC ID is activated. If you've checked out a book recently your card IS activated. Otherwise, stop by the Circulation Desk in the Library to activate it.
  • Visit the CUNY Databases page. In the pop-up window, enter your 14 digit BMCC ID barcode number, which is found on the back of your ID card. It starts with the digit 2.
