Remote Access / Restrictions

Information about using the Library database, e-reserves, and other online services off-campus.

BCC Students / Dual Enrolled Students / Faculty /Staff

Off-Campus access to databases licensed by the Sidney Silverman Library is restricted to BCC faculty and staff and to students currently enrolled in courses which bear institutional and/or degree credits.

When you select a database from the Library’s databases, a dialog box will prompt you to enter your Bergen Username and your Password (same login to access portal).

Library Database login

After entering your Bergen Username and Password, click on login. In most cases, this login information will be retained until you exit from your browser.

If you have trouble accessing or have questions about your Bergen Username and Password, please contact the IT HELP DESK at (201) 447-7109.

Your BCC ID Number

Your Bergen Community College Identification Number (BCC ID#) can be found on the front and back of your Bergen ID card. (Look for the seven digit number above your name on the front of your ID or below the barcode on the back of your ID.) Your BCC ID# is also printed on your registration information, bills, and other college communications. It may also be referred to as your “student number”. If you do not have a BCC ID card, please request one at the Public Safety office on the first floor of the Pitkin Education Center.

New Jersey Residents/Public Library Card Holders

Remote access to some library databases is available to all NJ public library card holders. This set of electronic resources covering a wide variety of topics has been assembled at the JerseyClicks website. JerseyClicks is funded by the NJ State Library.
