If you're doing research using one of the Tri-C Library Research Guides or the Tri-C Library website, when you click on a link to a resource like a database, a journal, or an electronic book, if you are not on campus, you will have to sign in. Another term for the library sign-on process is authenticate so when you click a link and see a page with Authentication in the title, it just means you need to sign in to get to the resource. Some resources are available to Tri-C students through Tri-C; other resources, through OhioLINK. Follow these steps to sign in. 

Tri-C Sign On / Authentication 

  1. On the Library Remote Authentication Logon page, type your S-number in the Username field and your Tri-C password in the Your Password field.
  2. Click Submit.

OhioLINK Sign On / Authentication

  1. On the Institution Selection Form, choose Cuyahoga Community College from the list.
  2. Choose your campus.
  3. On the OhioLINK Authentication Form, type your name in the format indicated on the page (last name first name, e.g., Smith Jane), then type your S-number.
