Off-Campus Access to Databases, E-journals, and E-books

From off-campus, Lehman users will be prompted to log into databases, ejournals, ebooks, and other subscription resources.

Students should log in as follows:

Use your LDAP login (not Lehman e-mail login).

This is the same login you use for Printing in the Library:

  • Username: Firstname.Lastname
  • Password: The default LDAP password (not e-mail) will expire every 90 days. Students are notified via their Lehman e-mail
  • For assistance with your Username or Password, contact the IT Help Desk ( or 718-960-1111, Carman Hall 108), or access the Self-Service Password Management website:
  • It is recommended that students register their LDAP passwords on the Self-Service Password Management website before their password expires.

Faculty should use current Lehman e-mail Username and Password.
