EDPS ProSeminar

Created for the ProSeminar class.


This guide is intended as an online companion to the two Library Research sessions for the EDPS Proseminar. For session one, we will address the following questions:

  1. What are two logins you may need for accessing library resources?
  2. What are two databases to try for your next research project?
  3. How do you find a journal article when you have a citation in front of you?
  4. What are two ways to request materials Hunter does not own?
  5. What is a citation manager and what is the name of one that you can use for free?
  6. What are some of the ways you can get help at the Libraries?

First things first...

Your Hunter College ID Card is Your OneCard

The first thing you should do is stop by the Circulation Desk in any of our Libraries to activate your card and your account.

Your Hunter Student ID Card/OneCard is your all-access pass to library resources including borrowing books, checking out laptop computers, printing, photocopying and more. It can also be used for a lot of campus-wide resources, so hang on to it and bring it with you everywhere!

You can also find your Library Barcode on the back of your ID. When asked for a Library Barcode and password, enter the number in both the Barcode and Password fields. Your Barcode is your Password unless you change it.

Your Hunter NetID and Password

Learn your Hunter NetID and password and don't forget them! Although if you do you can always go here to look it up. Your NetID and password will allow you access to our WiFi,  databases, and other electronic resources from anywhere you have an internet connection. That includes your home, the nearest Starbucks, the airport...

Learn Your Logins

You need several other logins/passwords to function as a student at Hunter. Here they are:

CUNYfirst username/password – used to access everything in CUNYfirst. This will also be used for your @myhunter email. 

MyHunter email address/password – use your CUNYfirst username followed by and your CUNYfirst password to access your email.

CUNY Portal ID/password – used for CUNY-wide services like Blackboard, DIG, and CUNY eMall
