Faculty Resources (Brandon) : Before You Start

A guide to Faculty library resources and services.

Welcome to the Library

Hillsborough Community College has switched to a new library catalog, PRIMO.  You can log on through CANVAS and go to the HCC Libraries via the toolbar on the left side of the screen in one of your courses. Click HCC Libraries Online in the center of the next screen. 

If you are prompted to log in to any of the library resources, look for SSO (single sign on). Then put in your NetID username and password - just like logging on to CANVAS. Remember to include hawkmail.hccfl.edu 

Need help with your NetID?  Register your NetID, reset your NetID password, etc. start at https://netid.hccfl.edu   

Need more assistance? Go to  hcclive.hccfl.edu  or call the Help Desk at 913-253-7000 

Tip:  If you are using your default password, change it as soon as possible.
