Library Cards & Off-Campus Access

Library Cards

The CMC Steamboat Campus Library generally issues library cards in person to students, faculty, staff and community members.  Please bring your Drivers License or Student ID with you.  If you are unable to come into the Library in person, you can use this form to obtain a library card.

Off-Campus Access to Library Resources

Many of our electronic resources are available to you even when you are not physically located on the CMC campus, or on a CMC network connection.  See these instructions to learn about how to get online with our resources from the comfort of your home, the great outdoors, or wherever you can get a good wireless connection!

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).
