 Go to and enter your search in the box. In this case, we will be using Abraham Lincoln. Click Search:


In the upper right hand corner, click on Sign In:

 Then click on “Community College signon” and enter your Net ID and password (Just like you were logging in to myCommNet):


 The results list will contain books, articles, etc., and you want a book. To limit to just books, click on “Available at ACC” on the left hand side of the page:


 HELPFUL HINT: If you want to look at the newest books first, click on Sort by and select Date-newest:

 To request the book, click on the title and then the blue request button. (It may take a few seconds for the blue request button to show.)


Note that the Pickup Location defaults to Asnuntuck Community College. You may also add information, such as “Not Needed After” (in case your project is due soon), and Comments. Click on the green REQUEST option.
