You must be a New York State resident to use this service. Your NYS Driver License or NYS Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) Non-Driver ID number will only be used to show that you are a New York State resident. No personal information is accessed or stored. Children may use the license number of a parent or guardian.
Additional Access: Public Libraries provide online access to subscription databases and other electronic materials, including NOVELNY databases. You can access the databases from your public library, or (in most cases) from outside the library with your public library card number or via password. Many academic libraries and school libraries also provide access to NOVELNY databases and other electronic resources.
