Login Instructions

Off-Campus Login Instructions

Off-campus access to the Virtual Library collection is restricted to CMC students, faculty, and staff.

When accessing Virtual Library databases from off-campus, you will be asked to login. There are several methods that will allow you to login to the Virtual Library system.

  1. Login through Canvas:
    You will find a link to “CMC Libraries" at the bottom of every course menu. Using “CMC Libraries” link in Canvas will pass required authentication to the libraries' online collections.

  2. Login with your CMC username and password:
    Upon accessing one of the library's online databases from off-campus you will be presented with a login screen. When a login screen appears, enter your CMC username and password.
    • What is my username?
      If you don't know your username you can find it through WebAdvisor.
    • What is my password?
      If you've never used WebAdvisor, MyCMC, or CMC provided e-mail, you'll have a default password?
      Your default password will be the letters ‘cmc’ followed by the last 6 digits of your SSN. If you don’t have a SSN, it will be ‘cmc’ followed by your 2 digit birth month and day followed by ‘xx’ (cmc0123xx for January 23; cmc1205xx for December 5).
    • For questions or problems with your CMC username or password, please contact Information Technologies Service Desk:
