Faculty Guide to Truxal Library

Remote access to library resources

Nearly all the library's online resources – journals, e-books, videos, and more – are available anywhere you have internet access!

  • Use your library card number to log into library resources when you're off campus
    • This is different from your AACC ID number – see library card info below
    • When prompted, enter the full barcode number with no spaces
  • Always access databases from an AACC page
    • Use a subject guide or our databases list (if you reach a database via Google, it won't know you're an AACC user, so you won't be able to log in)
    • Links to specific articles, e-books, and other items should also point to AACC's authentication server – if you're having trouble opening an item from home, see this FAQ on troubleshooting links
    • You don't have to log into Canvas or MyAACC to use library resources
  • You're not required to set up an account for each database
    • While most databases offer advanced features if you create an account with your email, you can usually access articles, e-books, and videos without doing so
    • If you're asked for a username and password (instead of your library card number) when trying to get back to an item you've bookmarked, see this FAQ on troubleshooting links
