Why can't I log into the databases?

The two most common reasons for login errors are:

1. You tried to login using your Canvas/SCC Connection ID instead of your student ID.
2. You are not registered for the current semester.

Only currently registered students, faculty, and staff are allowed to use the databases off campus and you must use your Student ID number (or Faculty/Staff ID number) with "SC" at the end.  

For students it should look like this:  0213685sc
For employees it should look like this:  0123456sc

If you do not know your student ID number you can log into the SCC Portal and find it on your class schedule.

If you are still having problems, please use the library chat located on our homepage and we can verify the number we have for your account. You can also call the Reference Desk (636.922.8620) and leave a voicemail, but the chat will offer a quicker response (provided you do so during our normal business hours).
