Accessing online resources off-campus

You can always use the Hostos Library website without signing in to:

  • search with OneSearch to look for database articles, books, or videos*
  • get advice about conducting library research through our Research 101 guide**
  • reserve a group study room

However, you will need to sign in in order to:

  • search an individual database in our A-Z list***
  • read the full text of an online article
  • read an e-book

To sign in (up until August 3, 2020)

  • Your Hostos ID must be activated at the library's circulation desk.****
  • If you have already checked out a book from the library this semester, your ID should be activated.
  • Once your ID is activated, when you are asked to sign in with your "barcode", enter the entire long number on your ID card.
  • If might also ask you for a "password"--if so, enter the same long number on your ID card.

AFTER August 3, 2020: use the same username and password that you use for CUNY First and Blackboard.
