Your Hawk Card is also your Library Card

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.

Background reading, look up your topic

Science encyclopedias are great because they get you started on your topic by providing:

* background information on your topic.

* keywords for further searches in the library databases.

Look up terms in this online dictionary. Includes geology and other earth science areas, such as planetary science, volcanology, paleontology, meteorology, and mineralogy.

Pro Tip: Use the search box on the lower left, "Search within work."
