Get Started in the Library Print Page

Get your CFCC ID Card

Registering your ID for use as a Library Card allows you to check out books, movies, Reserve items and more.

 (You also get discounts at many area businesses.)


Set up your MyCFCC password

Your MyCFCC login gets you on the Library's computers and lets you access electronic resources from off-campus.

Go to WebAdvisor.

Be prepared with your ID number and an idea for an 8-digit password that includes a mix of upper & lower case letters and numbers.


Scan the Library’s website

You’ll find our hours and policies, links to the Library catalog and subscription databases, research guides, upcoming events, and even “after hours” help.




Use Faculty Reserves

Come to the CIRCULATION desk and request Reserve items by your NUR course number.

For Example: "NUR 113"

Most items check out for two hours, in-Library use.



Reference Staff Can Help By:

  • Suggesting specific CFCC reference books—as well as any special searching strategies for their indexes—which might contain answers to a particular question
  • Teaching use of the catalog, including its advanced features, or recommending alternative search terms—especially Library of Congress subject headings
  • Compiling a list of books on a particular subject or by a particular author
  • Taking the user directly to the shelves for browsing, or finding an item that isn’t where it’s supposed to be
  • Helping with selection of the best CFCC subscription databases for a particular project or paper and access tips from on or off-campus
  • Placing an item “request,” which prevents the current borrower from renewing the item and notifies the next borrower as soon as the item is returned
  • Requesting an interlibrary loan of books or journal articles from other cooperating libraries anywhere in the world
  • Recommending reliable web sites and giving advice about evaluating the reliability of the information on the open Internet
