The Libraries subscribes to several commercial full-text databases that are available through the World Wide Web. Those databases that are common to CUNY are most easily accessed through the Hunter College Libraries homepage <> or the CUNY Libraries homepage: <> (follow the link under "Licensed Resources").

At present these databases include Lexis/Nexis, Academic Search Premier, Psycinfo and ERIC. If you connect from off-campus through the CUNY Libraries Homepage, many of the licensed resources are accessible with Remote Patron Authentication (RPA). From the menu, any of the databases that have a small green house icon next to them can be accessed remotely using the bar code from your CUNY ID.

In addition, all Hunter faculty, staff and students may access the licensed World Wide Web resources from home by signing up for an account on the Hunter College Libraries' proxy server.

Faculty workshops on the use of the Internet can be scheduled during the academic year if requested. Contact Prof. Danise Hoover for more information.
