How do I get a library card?
Last updated: Jan 30, 2023     Views: 10700

Your Truxal library card allows you to borrow materials from the library. Plus, if you don't have a MyAACC login, you can use your card number to access the library's online resources when you're not on campus.

Only need online resources? Use your MyAACC login

Students, faculty, and staff, use your MyAACC username and password to access library databases – no library card required. Please read on if you wish to borrow hard-copy/physical materials.

Have an AACC photo ID card?

If you have an AACC ID card, you have a library card! To borrow books or other hard-copy materials, bring your ID card to the circulation desk on the second floor of the library and staff will scan the barcode to start your borrowing privileges. If you have the digital ID, staff can scan the barcode from your TouchNet 360u app.

Get a Truxal library card

If you don't have an AACC photo ID, if you're an eligible member of the public, or if you attend another college, visit the circulation desk to get a Truxal library card. Please bring a valid, government-issued ID showing your current address. (Possible forms of identification are a Maryland driver's license, MVA identification card, or military ID. If you're an AACC student who has no photo ID, notify the circulation desk staff and an alternative identity verification process will be provided.)

Apply for a library card online

Students, faculty, and staff who attend classes or work at AMIL, GBTC, or HCAT are eligible to have certain library materials delivered to those sites. Before placing your first delivery request, you must complete the online library card application. Please allow up to 1 business day for your request to be processed. Your library card number will be sent to your AACC email address (not your Canvas inbox), and you'll receive your Truxal library card in the mail.
