Library Privileges

CCS alumni retain Library privileges after graduation. To access the Library, use the main doors on Frederick Douglass. Buzz the security desk (via the intercom to the left of the doors) and request access to the Library.

Use the Library catalog to search for books. For help finding books, see the instructional video on navigating the Library's catalog or ask at the desk.

Computer Use

Alumni may log on to the guest wifi from personal devices or use the computers in the Library for three hours per day. Using the Library’s computers allows access to all the databases, including subscription databases. Please see staff at the circulation desk for database access. 

The Library computers are equipped with the Microsoft Office Suite; the Adobe Creative Cloud apps are only accessible if you have an existing subscription. You may use the scanners in the Library to create digital documents but printing and copying are not available.
