Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about CCC Library.
  • How do I access a database?
  • Looking for EBSCO, GVRL, or Films on Demand?
    Access our library databases on our A-Z Databases page. Filter databases by subject (e.g., history) or by information type (e.g., streaming videos).
  • How do I log in?
  • In order to access library resources or view your account, you need to be logged in. Log in using your myClackamas username and password, which is your full email address and password. You can do this from many places and at many points in your research:
    • From the CCC Library homepage, at the top right, using the "My Account" link.
    • From your search results page or a book or article record, using the "Sign in" ribbon in the center of the screen.
    If you experience problems logging into your account, troubleshooting information is available on the Why can’t I log in? FAQ page.
  • Get an article from Google Scholar. For free!
  • If you find an article through Google Scholar but can’t get access (or they want to charge you money to read it), follow these steps:
    1. Search the CCC Library Catalog for the title.
    2. Use the "Refine my results" left sidebar to trim down your results to the right format, publication date, or author.
    3. Select the green "Full text online" link on the article to read it.
    4. If the link says "No full-text available," fill out an Interlibrary Loan request form and we’ll borrow the item from one of our partner libraries and email it to you, usually within one or two days.
    5. If this doesn’t work or you need help, contact your friendly librarian!
  • I am looking for something non-library related.
  • This is just the FAQ for CCC Library services and resources, so if you are looking for information for another CCC department, try searching the main College website.
