Applying for a HLC library card at Frank Phillips College
Video's and Tutorials
*For off campus access, please visit your student portal and look for the “Passwords for library databases” document on the front page.
(a group of about 70 different databases for magazines, newspapers, and more)
(a group of 10 databases including audio books)
(a database with academic articles on a range of topics from life sciences, language and literature, history, political science, sociology, and more)
(a database containing peer-review life science articles for student and faculty research)
How to log in:
If you are a student at Frank Phillips College, the username and password for the databases are on the front page of your student portal (CAMS). If you are on-campus, you should not be asked for a username or password except by the HLC databases.
The HLC databases require a library card from somewhere in the HLC (which includes FPC) and a 4 digit PIN number for the password. The username to login will be the 13 numbers on the barcode of your library card. The 4 digit PIN number must be obtained from the librarian, so please call Jason Price at (806) 457-4200 x 787 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students have access to everything from the comfort of their residence hall or their home, with the exception of the paper books on our shelves. We have a number of databases that provide a number of full-text magazines and newspapers. In addition, we have access to over 27,000 electronic books and the catalog of print books from all 130 or so libraries from the Harrington Library Consortium is available to browse online.
