The library has three printer/photocopiers available (one on the ground floor and two upstairs. Please read these instructions to print your job(s). It is important that you follow the posted instructions and select the correct printer for your job.

Please be sure you know your MySolano username and password so you can access your PaperCut account.
As a student (or faculty/staff member) at SCC, you have access to all the library's subscription (fee-based) databases. These databases provide access to articles, e-books, and other information sources that are often not freely available online. To access these databases, you must go through the library's website.
EZ Proxy is a server that allows you to access the library's subscription (fee-based) databases from anywhere off-campus. You just need to know your MySolano username and password (the same username/password you use to register for classes). Please note the following:
Connecting to the library databases with EZ Proxy should be easy. From off campus, when you click on a library database link, you will be asked to log in using your MySolano log in (username/password). After a successful log in, the database will open.Having trouble logging in?
