Off Campus Database Access
Databases at The Cooper Union
All web-based resources from the Cooper Union Library are available campuswide.
Off campus access is available for most restricted e-resources via the Library web site by clicking on the name of the e-resource under Resources by Subject. (Resources by Subject is also listed in the left-hand column of the Library home page.) You will see a new screen that will ask you to enter the Library barcode from the back of your ID.
If that doesn't work, click on this link, Off Campus Database Access, which is also found in the bottom left corner of the Library home page. When the new screen appears, enter the Library barcode from the back of your ID. This will lead you to a list of links for Cooper's e-resources.
Be sure that your Library registration is up to date and that there are no blocks on your account. The most common reasons for a block are fines over $5 or an improper email address.
Databases at NYU or the New School
Due to licensing restrictions, you are not allowed to use the electronic resources at NYU or the New School (including Parsons) unless you are physically at NYU or the New School. If you are asked to input a NetID, you will not be able to access the desired link. Your only alternative is to go to the campus of the library that owns the resource.
