About Library Databases

Off Campus Access 

In most cases, you will have to login to the database if you are off campus.  Login using NYU NetID and password.

Citation Tools

Although features vary from program to program, most citation management tools help you do three things:

  • Import citation information from a variety of sources (including library databases) automatically
  • Collect, organize and annotate references
  • Generate bibliographies and in-text citations in a variety of styles automatically


Use recommended databases below to start your research. 

If you need a journal that's the most influential in your field try Journal Citation Reports (JCR) by ISI Web of Knowledge.  JCR provides statistical information on the influence and impact a journal has in its field.
