ACC Library: Distance Learning

Distance Learning

Visit the ACC Distance Learning and Education page here.

How can I get a Library Card?
An ACC Library Card is required to check out materials. Your ACC photo ID serves as your library card. To get your photo ID, Students, Faculty and Staff can fill out the form on this page and the Public Safety office will contact you when your information has been entered into the system. Please wait for a reply before arriving to receive your ID and parking pass in order to avoid any wait time.

Once you have received your ID, you must activate your card by visiting the library or you can fill out the online library card registration form here.

How can I get books and/or AV material?
The library catalog is available here. Let us know, by e-mail, phone, or in person what material you need. Indicate title, author, or subject and any other information you might have about the item you are requesting. If we do not have an item, we can get it for you through interlibrary loan (ILL). This takes a little longer – usually one to three weeks. You can request an ILL yourself on the library’s catalog by placing a hold. When the item comes in or we pull it off the shelves here, we can mail it to you or you can pick it up at the library.

What databases are available to me?
You can access all of our databases via our website here, including NC Live, JSTOR, ScienceDirect, and others. Log in using your SelfService credentials. 

What other resources are available?
You can access the individual research guides for specific classes or topics here. You can also see all our video tutorials on our YouTube page here. 

How do I get reference service from home?
The LRC staff will be happy to answer your reference questions or assist you with your research over the phone, via email, or through our chat reference service.  

We also provide virtual research consultations. For more information or to schedule one, click here

What help you can you provide if I have vision problems or other special needs?
We can provide assistance in a variety of ways, but special needs students should first contact Disability Services.
