Your CCRI ID is your Library Card

Your CCRI Student ID serves as your library card, once you have it activated at the library.

Get your Student ID through the Office of Student Services.

Your library barcode number is the 14-digit number (no letters) printed below the barcode.

How do I Support Distance Learners?

Library Card

Encourage your students to get a library card for access to books, databases, and more.

Special Circumstances

For those students who are only enrolled in Distance Learning courses and cannot travel to a CCRI campus, please refer them to the Distance Learning Services Library Card Application.

Library Resources and Services

Many of the library's resources are available online and easily accessible for distance learning students.

Consider placing a link to the Library Home page within your online course.

Provide links to our subscription databases.  See the How Do I Link To Databases page for details on linking to databases and even specific articles within the databases.

Academic Search Complete - a multidisciplinary periodical database

Contact the Circulation Desk if there are items you want placed on e-reserve or for any questions on borrowing material.

Contact the Reference Department with questions about our resources and ideas for how we can serve you and your students better.

Contemplate linking your course to the library's research courses.
