Library Services for Early College Students
Through the Early College Start (ECS) program, high school juniors and seniors may enroll in ACC courses held at their high school - or taught at any ACC Campus (or online).
Additionally, ACC Early College High Schools enroll students in ACC courses held at their high school locations.
This webpage contains several facts about ACC Libraries that may seem different to you than your high school library - or - local public library. So, please don't be shy! Ask away! The ACC Library wants to help you obtain the library resources and services you need to succeed in your college coursework.
College libraries are different from high school libraries. You may immediately notice a difference in the physical setting -- even our study areas may seem different to you. And our collection will seem different in its size, contents, and arrangement. For example, college libraries tend to be larger and collect resources to support the courses taught here. Additionally, our online services and online full-text collection will be different, including that our internet access has no filtering.

Library Website - Resources and Services
The ACC Library Website http://library.austincc.edu/ provides access to the Library Catalog, full-text article databases, research guides, online tutorials, and more! The Library website is a great place to start your research for books and articles.
Note: When you are researching or studying at any of the ACC campus Libraries, you will find they all have pcs for student access to Library resources and services. And, of course, you can access the Library website remotely from anywhere you have internet access. If you have your own laptop, it's okay to bring that to the Library too -- as ACC has a student wireless network that works on-campus. (You'll need your ACCeID to log-in to the College wireless student network.)Some useful online resources:
- Find Books and Online E-books at ACC and Other Libraries || Checkout Policies
- How books are shelved in ACC libraries.
- Find Articles from our Online Databases
- Getting Access to Databases from Off-Campus
- TexShare Cards
Both ACC ECS and ECHS students have ACC Library checkout privileges - meaning you can check-out most books and media items.
If you call us, we can even send and hold the book for you at your nearest ACC campus library. You'll need your ACC ID or other photo ID to check-out materials.
Early College Students are eligible for special 'distance document delivery' service too!
How do you request 'distance' document delivery help? It's easy!
Just complete this online form -- distance learners document delivery request.
Instructors may require that you utilize Library resources and services - BUT - do so without arranging help for you. Instead, they assume that you self-advocate and ask for assistance from ACC Librarians without their prompt.
Here are a few tips to help. Also, remember to Ask a Librarian!
- Transition to College
- Library research survival skills presentation
- Life after high school
- Evaluating Information on the Internet
- Online Tutorials
