Visitor Access to Online Content

Visitors and alumni can access all resources, both print and E resources, when in the library (on-site). Visitors will be logged in by library staff for eBooks and database access.

CloudSource is a database that is available for anyone!

Off campus access of the electronic resources, per our licenses with vendors, is only available to the currently-enrolled students, faculty, and staff.  This access requires a CCU Login credential that must formally be setup through the Registrar and Technology Support.
