Remote Access

When you access NYPL databases remotely, a box will pop-up where you can enter your your library card bar code and pin number. 

Sometimes browsers are leery of the "ezproxy" portion of the URL that many NYPL databases have. You may need to refresh your browser a couple of times before you are able to connect. 

If you have trouble, let me know and I will try to troubleshoot or refer you to my colleagues at NYPL for assistance.
