Remote access to NC LIVE, the state-wide library
project, and SIRS, Literature Resources Center and Health Reference
Center-Academic, electronic databases subscribed by the LRC, are
available to registered students, staff, and faculty. Students who are
eligible for home access must apply in person at the circulation desk.
Distance learning students are asked to fax or
mail a copy of these documents to the LRC along with a signed copy of
the Remote Access User Agreement
(Adobe Acrobat version 5.0 or higher required). Passwords and user identification
numbers will be mailed to them. Remote access cannot be issued to
students by telephone. Faculty and staff (including part-time) are asked
to print and sign the Remote Access User
Agreement (Adobe Acrobat required) and return
it to the LRC. User identification numbers and passwords will be
e-mailed to staff and faculty.

The same agreement form used for faculty will be used
for distance learning students. The form states that the user agrees to
keep identification numbers and passwords confidential. Use is intended
for registered HCC students, faculty, and staff only, passwords cannot
be shared. On-campus students are asked to sign a Remote Access User
Agreement Log. The vendors providing the electronic information have
been adamant in their requests that libraries and LRC's authenticate
users and that eligible users honor the need for confidentiality by not
sharing identification numbers and passwords with an ineligible party.
Passwords may change every
will be the responsibility of the patron to personally contact the LRC
each semester to receive new user identification numbers and passwords
by bringing appropriate documentation to the circulation desk. Faculty
and staff will need to follow the same procedure.
Once students have graduated or terminated their
studies at HCC, they will no longer be eligible for remote access. Once
faculty and staff are no longer employed at the College, they will no
longer be eligible for remote access.
