Faculty Online Library Resources and Services: Overview

LIBRARY SERVICES REMAIN OPEN!

Welcome

Many resources and services are available to you and your students from off-campus.   This guide shows how you can access online library resources and how to get help when you need it. We will be updating this page frequently when we are able to offer information about additional services and options for contacting the library.

Off-Campus Library Access

Waubonsee faculty and their students have off-campus access to the Library's online databases which can be used to search and view articles and e-books. Log in to mywcc with your Waubonsee X-number and password, then access the Llbrary’s online resources from the Library tab on mywcc.

Students not only have access to these online resources, but remote help from librarians.  

If you need assistance with logging in to mywcc, consult the resources on the Technology Resources and Help guide. If you still need help, contact the Technical Assistance Center at tac@waubonsee.edu. Be sure to include your X-number and a callback phone number and/or email.

Help and Assistance

During the time that the campus is closed, the Library will be available to assist in the following ways:

  • Chat service on the library website will be available during library hours of operation. If there is no response, submit your question and we will get back to you as soon as possible. 
  • Submit a message on the form on the Library "Contact Us" webpage, and we will respond as soon as possible. 
  • Email reference@waubonsee.edu for assistance with your research or questions for a librarian.
  • If you have been working with a specific librarian, you may contact them directly through their WCC email. All Library staff are monitoring their email.
  • Email LibraryTechSupport@waubonsee.edu for problems with accessing library resources. 

Checked out materials extended

All checked out material will automatically be extended.

Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan is currently operating for electronic delivery of articles only. Order articles from the library request form https://www.waubonsee.edu/student-experience/library/services/interlibrary-loan or directly from the database.  Physical items (books, dvds) currently checked out will have their due dates extended (do not return at this time).
