Online Learning / Distance Education

This guide will introduce you to all the tools that make research possible even if you're far from campus and taking one of our online courses.

Online Students and the STCC Library

Logo for Blackboard virtual learning environment Welcome Online Students! To use the STCC Library as an online learning student, you'll need to complete this form. We will provide you with a library access number that you'll use to sign in to our databases from off-campus. 

Why should I register with the Library? 

  • The main benefit to registering for Library access is you will be able to use our research databases without being on campus. 
  • You can also read eBooks and view our collection of streaming media
  • If you are a resident of western or central Massachusetts, you can order books from our C/WMARS system and pick them up at your local library. 
  • You can also check your library account for due dates and renew items you have checked out.
