Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I get my Library Card?

  • Your Student ID Card or Employee ID Card acts as your library card.
  • ID/Library cards are issued by the Public Safety Office at the Pecos Campus and at the Williams campus.
  • Library cards are required to check out materials from the CGCC libraries including reserve materials.
Your ID/library card will also allow you to check out items from the other Maricopa Community College Libraries.

How do I log into library resources from off campus?

Use your MEID and password (same as My Maricopa, Canvas and Blackboard) to log into library resources such as the article databases and book catalog.

If you have any problems logging in call (480) 857-5100 or (480) 857-5102.
