What is available?
The Library has lots to offer students. In addition to all of our
print materials we offer a large selection of online databases:
· Credo Reference
· News Bank
· Ebsco eBooks
· Gale Databases
To access the online databases from home, you need to send an email
to the Library at
firstname.lastname@example.org and request the passwords. You must be
a currently registered student to receive the passwords. Include your student ID number in your email to the Library so we may verify that you are a PHCC ACE student.
How do I use the resources?
ACE students taking classes on campus may check out books. Students will need to bring a College ID Card with them in order to register. Materials are checked out for a period of two weeks with the ability to be renewed for an additional two weeks. Books or DVDs can be returned to any of the College's locations.
Note: ACE students taking classes at their high school must use the library resources there and may not check out books, DVD's etc. from the PHCC Library. However, they may use Library resources on campus.
