How do I access library databases from off-campus?

Access to the CSI Library's databases and electronic resources is restricted to current students, faculty, and staff of the College of Staten Island. In order to access library databases from off-campus, users must sign in with their CSI Faculty/Staff or Student e-mail account. (Students can also sign in with their SLAS username [firstname.lastname] and password. This is the same password used for logging in to computers in the lab or library.)

Further information about CSI email accounts is available from the Office of Information Technology (OIT).

If you do not have a CSI email account or do not know your email login, please contact the HelpDesk at

If your SLAS credentials are not working, users can access CUNY-wide electronic resources using their CUNYfirst login
