LA 5090: Master of Professional Studies Project: Passkey

Introduces students to the resources available at Cornell University Library with emphasis on the Erie Canal class project.


What: Passkey is a bookmark (Firefox and IE) which lets you quickly authenticate as a CU person, when you're off-campus.

Do you access journals and databases from off-campus?

Try this bookmark to avoid having to go through the catalog, or to access resources after finding something through Google.


  • Drag the Passkey icon above to your Firefox toolbar (or add to IE favorites)
  • The next time you're off-campus and a publisher asks you to log-in, click the Passkey.  You'll be prompted for your CU netid.

  • Details are at CUL Labs (Cool Tools)

Time Required: Less than one minute to set-up!
