ENGL V01A: Off-campus access

Off-Campus Access to Library Resources

Did you know that you can access library databases from off-campus?  When trying to access proprietary content, you'll be prompted to login with your MyVCCCD credentials.  Or, you can follow the steps outlined below.

From the Portal

First, go to the MyVCCCD portal page, located at

MyVCCCD portal login screen

Type in your username and password as you normally would. This logs you into the portal:

Click on the "Library and Learning Resources" tab; that will take you to a screen that looks similar to this:

Click on the orange "Library Homepage" button and that will take you to the Library Resources page.

When you click on a database, you should be able to enter the database directly, because you have already logged into the portal.
