Off Campus Access

Although the SRJC Libraries would like to offer open access to all information resources, license agreements with the publishers of our online databases, e-journals, and e-books require that only current SRJC students, faculty, and staff be given access to these resources.

When accessing many of the databases and other e-resources from off campus, you may be prompted for your student ID and PIN number by the SRJC Libraries database access system. Once you enter your ID number and PIN, you'll be able to use the databases, e-journals, and e-books just as if you were on campus.

A portal PIN number is assigned to you the first time you use the portal system. If you don't remember your student ID number or your SRJC PIN, log in to the student or faculty portal, select "I do not know my ID number" or "I do not know my PIN code," then follow the instructions to have your information e-mailed to you.

If you are not a current SRJC student or staff member, the Sonoma County Public Library also offers a collection of online article databases. It offers free access to to all Sonoma County residents with a Sonoma County Library card.


When using our resources off campus, you will be asked to login. The off-campus login screen looks like this:
