Accessing database content from home

At the top of each Database page, you will notice the blue text of a link that says "login assistance."


This link is very useful for when you are accessing databases from a computer away from the BPCC network. Namely, when you are in the comfort of your home, the database you are trying to access has no idea you are a BPCC student. Since these electronic resources are only available to current BPCC students, you will need to login to access the content. Logging in is very easy; after selecting the database you want to access as normal (which we will cover later in this tutorial) your computer will ask you to log in with a User ID and a PIN number. The login assistance page will tell you what that ID and number should be.


The login is tied to an individual user, so you will need the barcode number on the back of your Campus Wide ID card and your 6 digit birth date to use as the password. After you login, you will be able to access all of the contents of these databases.
