Distance Education Services
Online Library Resource Access Application

As a student enrolled exclusively in distance education courses at College of San Mateo you need an online library card account to do research using Library databases. CSM students may use any library card from the Peninsula Library System--if you already have one, there is no need to apply again.


  • Online library card account access expires after one semester
  • To access databases, login with the account number and PIN (usually the last four digits of your phone number)
  • Enrollment as a distance student at CSM will be verified prior to issuing a library card account
Semester of access: Fall Spring Summer
