Library Privileges

CCS alumni retain Library privileges after graduation. To access the Library, please use the main doors on Frederick Douglass. You need to buzz the security desk (via the intercom to the left of the doors) and request access to the Library.

Alumni may log on to the guest wifi from personal devices or use the computers in the Library (you need to request access at the desk). Using the Library’s computers allows access to all the databases listed HERE, including subscription databases. The Library computers are equipped with the Microsoft Office Suite; the Adobe Creative Cloud apps are only accessible if you have an existing subscription. You may use the scanners in the Library to create digital documents but printing and copying are not available.

For help finding books, please see the instructional video on navigating the Library's catalog HERE.
