Teacher Resources

Educators (teachers, media specialists, homeschool instructors, daycare providers, etc.) in Scott County may apply to receive an Educator Online Access Card account. To apply, fill out our online form, and a staff member will email you a card number and PIN number. 

Before applying, here are important things to know about Educator Online Access Cards:
  • The accounts may only be used to access the online reference sources available to Scott County residents (ELM, MELSA, Scott County). 
  • The account may not be used to reserve or check out physical library materials.
  • The account may not be used outside the Scott County Library System.
