In order to use the library databases from off campus, you must first log in to the library's authentication system.  After selecting a database, you’ll be prompted to enter your username and password.  Your username is your NYU Net ID and your password was set by you during NetID activation.  

You can also connect remotely to NYU-Poly's VPN (virtual private network). When you use the VPN, all Poly accounts should function as if you are actually on campus. 
Alternatively, you can connect to Bobst Library from off campus with your NetID login or via NYU's VPN.
