About Library Databases
Dibner Library subscribes to a wide range of electronic databases (what's a database?). Some contain full text of journals, newspapers, magazines or books (look for the icon), while others contain only citations and abstracts. Databases can also contain data sets, manuscripts, dissertations, technical reports, videos, and many other other types of content.
Off Campus Access
A key icon indicates that you will have to login to the database if you are off campus. Login using the first part of your Poly email (before the @) and your NYU-Poly ID number. To access databases directly through NYU Bobst Library, use your NetID and password.
Finding Full Text
Not all databases will provide you a direct link to the full text of an article. When you see this icon, the database is enabled with SFX, an article linker that connects citations with full text.
When you come across a button that looks like or , click it for a menu of options to get full text. You may be required to enter your NYU NetID and password to follow the link to the full text. For more information, read SFX Frequently Asked Questions.
