Off Campus Access to Library Resources: Home

Want to read an article or ebook off campus? Stream a video or listen to music? Here's how it works.

Library Logins

To access Library resources from off-campus, you will use a single sign-on method (SSO).

Read below for instructions on logging in using your SSO. 

Still having trouble? Please email us at and an LAVC librarian will respond no later than the next business day (during the hours posted on our website). 

SSO Login

Currently, accessing many of the Library's resources from off-campus requires you log in through the LACCD SSO page (see example below). 

  • For students: use your Student ID number for your username + your SSO/Canvas password.
  • For employees: use the first part of your work email (everything before the "@" symbol) for your username + your SSO/Canvas password.

If you are on your own private computer, go ahead and stay logged in. If you are on a public computer, choose the option to not remain logged in.
