If you are a current Skyline College (or SMCCD) student, faculty, or staff, you automatically have a free college library account that can be used to borrow materials and access collections at the college libraries. You don't need a physical card beyond your College ID and/or your G number.
Your Library Account provides access to:
Library Databases - Our Library subscribes to many databases, both general and subject-specific. To log into our databases off-campus you'll need to use your email or Canvas login.
If you are NOT a current Skyline College (or SMCCD) student, faculty, or staff, you're still eligible for a San Mateo Community College District Library account. For more information and to register, visit SMCCD OneSearch Guide.
Also, you can request items from our colleges via your public library. Please visit your local library for more information.
