  • 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. To change your PIN access “My Account”. Click “PIN” to change it.
