Hawk Card

With your HawkCard you can:

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

Access online resources on 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.
  4. To change your PIN access “My Account”. Click “PIN” to change it.
  5. Having trouble logging in? Contact an HCC campus library.
