All web-based resources from our Library are available campuswide. Off campus access is available for most restricted e-resources via the Library web site. When you click on a restricted link from off campus, you will be prompted to enter the Library barcode from the back of your ID.
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.
Due to licensing restrictions, you are not allowed to use their resources unless you are physically at NYU or the New School. If you are asked to input a NetID, you are not on their campuses.
The SFX system links an article citation to the full text of the article. If the Cooper library subscribes to an e-journal or full-text database containing the article, clicking the SFX button will get you directly to the article.
If there is no electronic version available at Cooper, you should search the online catalog for the title of the journal or book containing the article. You may find a print version available at the Cooper library, or a print or electronic version available at NYU or other consortium libraries.
If you do not find the article source listed in BobCat, please contact your librarians at Cooper Union for help in locating the item
