Intro to College Reading & Study Skills: Introduction to the Library

Accessing Library Resources from Home

• Library resources can be accessed off campus through Blackboard or the library’s web page.

• From the library web page

• From Blackboard Click on the Library tab near the top of the page in Blackboard.

• To get access, you must use your College-assigned username and password. Your username can usually be found on your schedule/bill. It typically is the first letter of your first name followed by your full last name and sometimes a number [i.e. Jane Doe = jdoe14]. Your password defaults to your WCTC Student ID number unless you have changed it. 

• If you have trouble locating or using your username/password, please call (262) 691-5555 to contact the WCTC Service Desk, which is now located in the library.
