Off-Campus Database Sign-In Instructions

W-ID and PIN through the LPC Library Homepage

Use your W number and your personal PIN (This PIN/password IS the same as your Blackboard Distance Education PIN. Read the instructions carefully). You will only need to be authenticated with your W number and PIN once during each Internet session. However, if you close the browser and then return to the LPC Library Homepage, you will need to enter your W-ID and PIN again.

W-ID and Pin

Your user ID is the "W" number, which was issued to you by the College. You can find your "W" number on CLASS Web.*

Your PIN consists of:

  • the first two letters of your first name
  • the first two letters of your last name
  • the last FOUR digits of your W#
  • example: John Smith with the W number W11122233 would use the PIN josm2233
