Library Catalog

Catalog Search

Our catalog has a new look!

The new interface will continue to change, but in the meantime you can still search for books, DVDs and other materials. 

You may log in at the top right corner of the screen to check due dates and to renew items (accounts are created at either library's circulation desk).  For first-time login use your student number as your Username and “userpass” as the Password.  You will be prompted to change your password upon the first log in. For help with login issues please contact the PPCC Library Staff.
