When you access library databases off campus, you will be prompted to log in with your TCL credentials.

Username: Your seven-digit TCL student ID number
Password:  First letter of your first name plus the last three digits of your social security number.

Example: John Smith (SSN: XXX-XX-X123) would enter j123 as his password.

Note: Some TCL IDs have only a six-digit number listed. If this is the case with your ID, enter a zero before your number. (Example: If your ID card says 123456, enter 0123456.)

If you do not know your ID number, visit Building 2 on the Beaufort campus or the LRC on the New River campus to have an ID made.
