As a GC alum, you have off-campus access to a selection of our research databases. Look for the GC Alum icon (below) next to the database name - if you see this icon, it means you have remote access to that database using your GC Alumni password! To log in, just click the title of the database and enter your alumni credentials.
You may also access Open Access resources that are listed on the Graduate Center's A-Z Database List
If you aren't sure about your status, or if you forgot your alumni credentials, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are not in the GC Library and you see any of the following icons next to the database you are trying to access,
please return to the Databases for Alumni list to see the list of resources available to alumni from off-campus.

Some CUNY-wide electronic resources ask you for a "CUNY library barcode" in order to login. The GC alumni library barcode will not work for these resources.
Select databases (like JSTOR) give you the option to “login” after you have used your GC Alumni credentials. These databases allow you to create a personal account which gives you the ability to save searches, create alerts, and use other special features. Creating a personal account is completely optional--you can still access full text and download content without a personal account.
