How do I log into the databases from off campus?

Frequently Asked Questions & Answers:

 Why can't I login to the databases from home?

   If you've used the login instructions provided from this page (under the login off campus) tab could be something wrong with your password or logon.  Please contact the help desk or librarians for additional assistance with your account.

How long does it take a CCS book to get to my house or center?

   Generally it will take 1-3 days depending how far you live away from the sending location.

Do I need an appointment to take a proctored test at the college locations?

   It is generally best to call and make an appointment so you can be assured the proctor and your test are at the testing location on the day you have planned to take your exam.

How do I return my library books back to their original library?

   It is best to turn the books into your closest center or CCS library.  They will send your library books back free of charge.  You may also send the books back by mail.  Please see the "Ask A Librarian" tab for correct addresses.  Note: Books will be discharged the day they arrive at the library or center.
