Access to electronic/online materials is available only to CCNY Students, Faculty and Staff through a proxy account. To create your off-campus/proxy account, you must have a library validated barcode which is located on the back of your campus ID card. To find out more information or to create your off-campus account, click here.
To find articles on a subject you must first select a database from the library's list of databases. If you are off-campus, you will be asked to log-in with your proxy/off-campus account before you can access the databases.
To browse our list of databases, visit our Databases A-Z list.
If you are not sure which database is appropriate for your subject area, visit our Subject Guide page.
Not every database will offer the full text of an article, it may only provide the citation and/or abstract. Use the button when you're in a database to see if we have the full-text available online through another database or if we have it available full-text in print.
