Members of the Cornell community have off-campus access to the library’s many restricted resources including thousands of journals, ebooks, and databases. An active NetID and password is required.
Connecting from Off-Campus
When attempting to connect to a library database from off-campus, use the links provided on the library website or catalog. You may be prompted for your NetID and password. This authentication process allows access even when your are off-campus.
Access Anywhere helps you connect to articles and journals from off-campus. After you install on your browser and you find yourself on a page that has access restrictions, click on the bookmarklet icon and you will be redirected to the Cornell log-in screen. After you log in, you will be automatically led back to the article you were trying to read. Please note, in some cases Passkey will not work for a specific journal that you should have access to. In those cases, search for the journal via the catalog to gain access.

Troubleshooting Problems with Off-Campus Access
Sometimes a database will give you an error or will not allow access. Here are a few things to look for:
- Try accessing another database. Can you get into one database, but not another?
- Clear your browser’s cache (for all time – not just past few hours) and restart your browser. Does this help?
- Try using a different browser such as Edge, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera (Some databases work better in a one browser than others.)
- If your computer is behind a firewall, you may have trouble accessing library databases. One option for accessing from off-campus is to use a secure virtual private network (VPN) provided by CIT. Most firewalls will allow VPN traffic.
If you continue to have trouble accessing an online resource, email us. Describe the problems you’ve encountered, including information such as database, web browser, and any error message you get. The Management Library’s reference staff will help you trouble-shoot your particular situation.
