Get a Library Card
Getting an Erwin Library card is as easy as stepping into the library with your student ID (make sure it has a current semester sticker on it!), and filling out a brief form. Library staff will place a barcode sticker on the back of your WCC ID card, which then will serve as your library card.
Farther away from WCC, or prefer to get your card from home? Fill out and submit the equally brief Library Card Application form on the Erwin Library homepage. Your library barcode number will be emailed to you, and the barcode sticker mailed to you to affix to the back of your WCC ID card.
The Erwin Library card will allow you to check out books at the library and to access the library's databases to find articles, videos, and other online resources from home, or any other computer outside of the library. When prompted, just enter all fourteen digits of your library card number to enable database access.
