Secondary Method for Off-Campus Access to Some Resources

CUNY purchases a core set of databases and journals shared by all CUNY libraries. Access these CUNY E-Resources using your CUNYfirst credentials. (Forgot your CUNYfirst credentials? Retrieve your username, or reset your password.)

The GC library provides access to all of the shared CUNY e-resources and many more, so we strongly recommend using our list of databases and journals instead. However, GC users having trouble logging in to our resources may wish to work from the CUNY E-Resources list until the problem is resolved.

Off-Campus Access after Graduation

Due to licensing restrictions and CUNY-wide rules governing student accounts, off-campus access to the full set of GC library resources is discontinued after graduation. However, alumni may register for off-campus access to selected databases (including JSTOR, Project Muse, and SAGE journals). Also, they may continue to use all library databases and journals by visiting the GC library in person. Further, the New York Public Library (and many other public libraries) provides off-site access to numerous databases and offers interlibrary loan services.
