Login Support: Message Sent to Campus

Message sent June 3rd 2020

Hello Campus Community!


We are excited to share that on June 1st, 2020, the STCC Library became a member of the HELM consortium!  The HELM consortium includes many Massachusetts community college libraries and as members, we now gain access  to many new shared resources geared to the community we serve.    


This email will discuss new ways of accessing library resources going forward.


How can I access Online Resources?

Students now have their library accounts automatically uploaded.  When students enroll in classes, their library card will be activated automatically  for the academic year.  Summer class enrollees will have summer access as well.


When accessing the databases from off campus, you will be prompted to sign in.

USERNAME   Students use their 7 digit Student ID number. Faculty & Staff should continue to use their library barcode.

PASSWORD - Last name in all CAPS

How will this impact borrowing?

When Covid precautions allow, book borrowing will resume later this year. You’ll still be able to check out STCC Library materials as you’ve always done with your RAM Card.  

More information about book borrowing will be sent to the campus community as updates become available.
