FAQs

How do I login to the databases?
Access to the subscription databases is restricted to PC students, faculty, and staff. When prompted, supply your PC email login (firstname.lastname) and your PC email password to gain entry.

What is Interlibrary Loan (ILL)?
If the PC Library does not have the book, video, or article you need, it can often be obtained through borrowing agreements with other libraries. This process does take extra time, so please allow for request processing and shipping time when you place your requests. Books and videos come via mail or interstate courier, whereas articles are often delivered digitally.

Does the Library have a copier?
Yes. The cost is 5ȼ per sheet for photocopies. Stop by the Information Desk and ask a staff member for assistance.

Can I send or receive a fax at the Library?
Yes. Sending a fax costs $1. Stop by the Information Desk and ask a staff member for assistance.

Where is the CLC and Testing Center?
