When accessing the research databases and other e-resources from off campus, you will be prompted for your MySWC User ID and birthdate by the SWC off campus access system.
As a student your MySWC User ID is the first initial of your first and last names, 0 (zero) and your six digit student ID number (ignore leading zero if your ID is already seven digits).
Example: aa0123456 or aa1023339
Enter your birthdate in this format, month, day and year (mmddyy)
Example: December 1, 1984 would enter: 120184

Although the Southwestern College Libraries would like to offer open access to all information resources, license agreements with the publishers of our online databases, e-journals, and e-books require that only current SWC students, faculty, and staff be given access to these resources from off campus locations.
Non-enrolled library patrons can access our research databases and e-resources from computer stations located inside the library building.
