HCC-Coleman College: Home


Most of our books and journal articles are online now. HCC users will need to register and establish personal OpenAthens accounts. Get a library card number from The TMC Library and register for remote access. Within two days, the library verifies that your institution has vouched for you. The Library triggers release of an email from OpenAthens that prompts you to follow a link to set up your individual login.

More information about the OpenAthens system can be found here:

The link to the registration form is here:

Use your HCC email address when filling out the form. You'll get an email asking you to click on a verification link. Then you'll get a second email with your username and password. You can change your password if you like. If you have any problems please call the Circulation Desk at: 713.799.7147
