Remote Access

All Queens College students, staff, and faculty can access the librarys’ electronic resources off-campus. To use databases while off-campus you must verify affiliation with Queens College when prompted.

Your CUNY Login credentials follow the pattern:, where “NN” is the last 2+ digits of your CUNY EMPLID.
