COMPUTER NETWORK The
LIU computers at the East New York Extension Site provide Internet
access; however, at time of posting they are not connected to the
LIU network and, therefore, do not provide full, on-campus access
to journal databases. In order to do so, you need to click on
off-campus databases and input your
LIU library barcode.
Brooklyn Campus Library has a separate web site highlighting its
resources and services, which can be reached by clicking Library
Home button on the left side of the screen. You can search the
computerized catalog by clicking “LIUCAT”
located at the top of the screen (LIUCAT
contains catalog information for all LIU campuses.)
If you are on the
main campus, you can click “Online
Databases” and be connected to the various databases subscribed
to by the Brooklyn Campus. By scrolling down through the A
to Z List Of Indexes, you can see all of the available databases
– clicking on the name of any one will connect you to that database.
Most of the database are available "off-campus"
as well; however, you need a library barcode which you can obtain

a more detailed explanation of LIUCAT and the databases, see Library
Guide 11, “Library Databases on the Internet,” located near the Reference

reference staff for library instruction customized for a particular
course or assignment.
