Off Campus Access

Note:  The NSCC Library Database Apps are not Free for everyone.  You have to be a student and must have NSCC ID in order to access them from off campus.  

In order to access the Library’s databases via your mobile device while off campus you must have a library activated NSCC ID. If you are on campus, stop by the Student Life Office in Danvers (DB 132) or Lynn (LW 171) with a current class schedule to get an ID.  Bring your NSCC ID to the library circulation desk and we will activate it. If you are a distance student follow these online instructions.

The fourteen digit barcode number on the bottom of your ID is your library card number. Enter this number when accessing databases off-campus. Your password is your birth date (mmddyyyy).
