To access library databases from off-campus, use your SUNY Adirondack username and password. 

That's the same thing you'd use to get into the your college email or Blackboard courses, and the college's wi-fi (wireless network).

Your network account information looks something like this: s_lastnamefirstinitial and a 9-character letter/number password. If you're registered for courses this semester, you have an assigned username/password. 

If you need to look it up, you can go directly to Banner. (There's a Banner link on the student portal, MY SUNYADK). 

Once you've logged on to Banner with your Banner number and PIN, go to Enter Secure Area > Personal Information tab >  Lookup Network ID and Password > follow screen directions. 

For assistance, contact the college's Information Technology (IT) staff at 518.743.2226 or email
