Connecting from Off Campus

The MJC Library subscribes to NoodleTools the same way we subscribe to our other databases.

Just like our other databases, when you access NoodleTools from off campus, you'll be asked to log in using your MJC ID and six-digit birth date in order to identify you as an authorized MJC Library user. Once you are authenticated as an MJC Library user, you’ll need to enter your NoodleTools personal ID and password to access your personal workspace.
