Off Campus Access

Access Library Databases and Other Resources Remotely

Access to library online databases from off-campus locations is available to current MiraCosta Students, Faculty, & Staff with your SURF ID and Password.

  • To access library online databases from off-campus locations, always use database links from the MiraCosta College Library web pages, including Databases A to Z.

  • Users will be prompted to enter their SURF ID and SURF Password to log-in to the database selected (for faculty & staff, this is the same as your email log-in).

  • During the same Internet browser session, one log-in should provide access to subsequent database selections.

If you are experiencing difficulty logging in, or have forgotten your SURF password, please contact the Student Help Desk.
