Quick links for updates and resources

Remote Access

All Queens College students, staff, and faculty can access to the libraries’ electronic resources off-campus. To use databases and electronic resources while off-campus you must verify affiliation with Queens College by entering an active QCard library barcode number when prompted.

To gain access to the libraries’ electronic resources you must have an active QCard library barcode, which is how the system identifies you with Queens College.

If you don't have your library barcode or have other access issues,  please email or contact us through Ask a Librarian for assistance.

Logging in

On the log-in page, you will be asked to enter your barcode. See the example below:

  If you cannot get past the log-in screen:

  • You might be entering an incorrect QCard library barcode number. Please double check!

  If you are still unsuccessful, there may be an issue with your account that is preventing access.
