Logging into HCC Libraries

Two ways to Log Into HCC Libraries

Log into Canvas, select a Course you are registered for and look at the left side column.  You should see the following list:

Click on HCC Libraries Online.  Canvas opens to the following page:

Click on Launch Hillsborough Community College which will bring you to the online catalog screen.  By logging into Canvas you are automatically logged into the HCC Library's website providing access to eBooks and database articles.

The second option to log into the Library's databases and access eBooks is to open hccfl.edu. Click on Library in the top Header under the HCC logo.

 

On the Home page for HCC Libraries, click on  "Log-in first for best results!".  You will be prompted to enter your Borrower ID and PIN/Password.

Your borrower ID is your 7-digit student ID number. The password should be the last 4 digits of your student ID number. If you experience any problems logging into the online catalog or electronic databases, please contact the library and we will do our best to assist you.

Your Hawk Card is also your Library Card

Hawk Card

With the HawkCard you can:

  • Check out books, etc. from the library
  • Use HCC's online research resources
  • Print and photocopy

Access the online resources linked from the HCC Libraries site:

  1. Your "Borrower ID" is your 7-digit student ID# (or employee ID#) on your Hawk Card.
  2. Input the last 4 digits of your ID# for the PIN. Looks like this.
  3. For example, if your ID# were 0456789, your PIN would be 6789.
