Access Library Databases from Off-Campus (HELM)

Students need to use their A# and a library password to access library databases from off-campus.

The default library password for students is their birthday in a  MMDDYYYY format - ie 07041776. 

If needed, you can reset your password. Make sure you enter a capital "A" for your A#.

Faculty will need to login with their MCC username or library barcode together with their library password to access online databases, streaming video, or other online library resources through our website from off campus.

If needed, you can reset your password

New faculty members will need to obtain a library account. Contact the library for help.
