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 (without the W) and six-digit birth date in order to identify you as an authorized MJC Library student.

Once you are authenticated as an MJC Library student, you’ll need to enter your NoodleTools personal ID and password to access your account.

​What If I'm Asked to Enter My Library's Information?

For security purposes, NoodleTools revalidates all accounts every August 1st. Simply enter:
