Free Webcams Available
for three day checkout from your campus library.
Webcams are available in each of the HCC Campus Libraries.
*Webcams are available to current students only. Place a hold on a webcam in advance of your trip to the library to make sure that one is available for you.
If you have any questions about the webcams or webcam reservation/hold process, please contact your campus library for assistance.
The library now has several models of webcams. All webcams connect to your device via USB.
Using the webcams is the same regardless of the model. Below are some steps:
Attach the webcam to your computer by plugging in to any available USB port.
When powered on, the hotspot will show the battery level and the signal strength in the small screen. (If the battery level is low, use the enclosed charging cable to charge and power the hotspot.)
Navigate between informational screens on the hotspot by pushing the power button. Each push will show a different screen.
This screen simply shows the billing cycle date for the device. It does not impact the student's ability to use the device.
Press the power button to display the Wifi name. This will be the name of the Wifi Network that you will select on your device in order to access the Internet.
After selecting the Wifi Network name, your device will likely ask for a password. The password for all HCC devices is Hawks1968.
Power off the device when you are not actively using it. Press and hold the power button until the display says Goodbye.
