I'm having trouble logging in off campus, how do I find my ID# so I can log into databases?


To log in off campus and access Library resources:
Go to OhioLINK Research Database List

2. Select the off campus URL of the database you wish to use.

2. Select Central Ohio Technical College from the drop-down menu.

3. Enter your last name followed by your first name and your COTC ID#.

To find your COTC ID#:

· Go to my cotc
· Log in using your name and your e-mail password
· Select My Schedule and Personal Information  (on the lower right)
· Select My Profile to see your COTC ID#

When using Library resources, use your COTC ID with the letters CT preceding the numbers. For example, CT0123456.

Your ID# should contain 7 digits; if you have 6 digits, add a zero to the front of the number. For example,  for the ID# 123456 enter CT0123456 to access databases.
