Where to find database passwords

If you use the library's databases on campus, you won't be asked for a login for most of them if you are using them on campus (including the residence halls).

If you need a login from off-campus and can't find your login sheet, you can easily get another one! If you have the SBU student planner, the logins are included near the back. You can check the electronic reserve site for a PDF copy that you can store on your computer. Or you can e-mail or call the reference desk ( or 375-2164) and someone will be glad to provide you with the password information.

We're sorry that we need to password-protect things, but because the fee that we pay is based on our student population, we cannot leave an open link up on the Web site--that would be a violation of our license agreements with the database vendors!

Additional Study Spaces during Exam Week

The library is extending its hours during Exam Week, and there are also other quiet study spaces available on campus!

From Saturday, December 9 through Thursday, December 14, you can use Plassmann 204/210 and the San Damiano Room in Francis Hall from 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.

Other study spaces that are already open 24-hours per day include the designated study rooms in the Shay basement and the study lounge located on First Rob. University Ministries is also available.

Whether you're studying in the library, one of these other spaces, or in your residence, please remember that many library services are available 24-hours per day! You can search our online databases any time, and use our AskUs 24/7 virtual reference service.

Good luck with finals!
