How to Log In to Access the Library's Online Resources

Current students, faculty, and staff at TAMU-CC can access the library's online databases from anywhere they have an Internet connectionWhen you are off campus, you will need to log in with your TAMU-CC username and password in order to gain access to the library databases. 

  • For students, use your Islander login information, your username is your Number or a combination of your name (jsmith34). Your password is what you use to log in to the computers on-campus
  • For faculty and staff, use your network ID and password to gain access to our online resources off campus.

Still Having Trouble Logging In?

  • If the resource you are trying to access asks you for a username and password other than your TAMU-CC login (or that asks you to pay for an article), you might be visiting a publisher's website without first going through the University Library's website. If you have a specific article you wish to access in full-text, see if we have access to it by using our Find a Specific Journal Tool.
  • Some library databases offer free personal accounts in order to save search strategies, articles, or books. These accounts require a unique login and password but are separate from your TAMU-CC login credentials.
  • Check out our databases alerts page in case there is a known issue about the database you are trying to access.
  • If you are a current student, faculty, or staff member and are having issues logging in, please contact Information Technology Services (ITS) to reset your password or use their Password Reset Tool.
