Effective April 5, login procedures for off-campus access to library databases, ebooks, and streaming videos have changed. Instead of using your last name and student/employee ID number, you can now sign in with your existing Student or Faculty/Staff Portal credentials (Peralta email address and password).
When you click on a database link on this site, you'll be asked to select the login method depending on whether you're a student or employee at Merritt College.
Once you select the appropriate category, you'll be redirected to either the Student or Faculty/Staff Portal sign-in page. Enter your existing Peralta email address and password to log into the database.
For assistance using databases, ebooks, or other electronic resources off campus, use the LibChat widget on the right to chat online with a librarian, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or text (510) 545-4789. LibChat is available Monday-Thursday, 8:00 am - 8:00 pm; Friday, 8:00 am - 4:00 pm; and Saturday, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm.
