There are two ways to access the databases at Valencia College Libraries:
1) Log into your Atlas account and click the "Search the Library" link in the upper right corner of the "Courses" tab. When the Library Catalog page opens, you will already be logged in.
2) Start at any Valencia Web Page and select Libraries on Quick Links. You will need to login now. The Login button is at the top right corner of the screen. To do that you will need to enter your VID Valencia Identification number (your "V" number) including the "V" in the box for Borrower's ID. Your PIN will be the last 4 digits of your "V" number.
Once the Library Catalog opens and you are logged in, you can choose the database you want either from the “Databases A-Z” tab or from the “Databases by Subject” tab. These are located at the top above the catalog. When you find the database you want in the list, click on it to connect.
*** NOTE *** Sometimes you may be prompted to use your Borrower’s ID and PIN to access an article that has been emailed or posted. Use your VID Valencia Identification number (with the V) as the Borrower’s ID. Your PIN is the last four digits of your VID number.
