If you are a returning student, you can visit the Registration tab to register for your courses.
Bring your Cecil College ID (student, staff, or faculty) to the library circulation desk. A member of the library staff will scan it into the system along with your contact information. A four-digit pin number will be placed on the back of your ID.
Use the online catalog to locate print books, electronic books, and DVDs. You can search by words or phrase, title, author, subject, or periodical. You can also search for materials placed on Reserve for your classes. Electronic books are available to read online, take notes, and print pages.
Journal, magazine and newspaper articles can be located using the databases. The library subscribes to a variety of databases that cover a wide range of subjects. In addition to the traditional databases, the library also subscribes to e-references that contain reports, encyclopedia articles, articles from other reference books, videos, maps, images, paintings, and standardized test preparation materials.
The library databases and e-books can be accessed off-campus from anywhere you have an internet connection. When you click on an individual database, you will be prompted to enter your CLAB username and password. This is the same as your MyCecil and Blackboard username and password.
Reserve items are kept behind the circulation desk. Please indicate the item title and course number when checking out a Reserve.
Books or articles that are not available in our library or in one of our databases can be obtained from other libraries through the Interlibrary Loan program. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with as much information about the item as possible. Please allow at least two weeks for your item to arrive.
The library offers the use of a printer/copier/scanner. All prints and copies are black-and-white only. Printing, copying and scanning are free at this time. Color copies can be purchased at the Mail Room on the first floor of the Arts & Sciences building.
The Student Government Association has provided a collection of popular DVD and blu-ray movies that can be checked out by students, faculty and staff. Up to two movies can be checked out at a time for a 7-day period. This collection of movies can be found in the online catalog.
You can reserve one of the two rooms located in the back of the library for group work or silent study.
Please contact the Library front desk to request these rooms.
