How do I access library resources from home?


Off-Campus Database Access 

CUNY Login

York Library users can use their CUNY Login credentials for for remote access to databases. You already use the CUNY Login to access BlackBoard and CUNYfirst, and now you can use it for any York Library databases, too. Use your CUNY login whenever prompted to authenticate for databases, articles, and more -- and that's the only library credential you will need!

Note that York College's VPN system is not recommended for library resources.
