Unfortunately remote access to library databases is strictly limited by the database vendors to current Pace students, faculty, and staff. Pricing for access is determined by potential users, which is defined by the number of active, enrolled students.
Some general databases are often available to users through their local public libraries. All New York State residents can apply to get a New York Public Library card (http://www.nypl.org/help/library-card) and a New York state Library card (http://www.nysl.nysed.gov/reference/borrowers/residents.htm) to access some of their general databases from home. Residents of other states can investigate similar options available through their local and state libraries.
Pace alumni can have their Pace Portal accounts reactivated by the Alumni Office. This will enable the use of on-campus computers (library or computer lab) to access the information in many of the library databases.
