How to Use RitzDiscovery

My Library Account

My Library Account

Access your library account from the Sign In link in the top right corner of RitzDiscovery. Enter your myDCC credentials to view your personal information and borrowing activity.  You can also place holds and renew library materials through your account. 

Please note that all students, faculty, and staff must have a DCC ID card to use the library account features. Please visit Campus Security to obtain an ID card.

Important Note

You can view the contents of library databases (articles, eBooks, videos, etc.) without clicking on the Sign In prompts in RitzDiscovery. The library databases and your library card account in RitzDiscovery are different software systems but both use the same myDCC login credentials.
