AutoCAD Licensing

Autocad is offering free licenses during the COVID-19 Pandemic.  Check out https://www.autodesk.com/education/free-software/autocad.   

This is available to both faculty and students. 

Make sure when installing that you use your CCSNH emails (@ccsnh.edu and @students.ccsnh.edu) and you affiliate with Manchester Community College.

Library Online Resources & Login Problems

Occasionally students who take or have taken classes at multiple NH Community College campuses may experience login problems when accessing MCC Library Online Resources even though they can access other applications like Canvas, Webmail and SIS.   

If this happens, try...

  1. Clearing your browsers cache and cookies and try to access the online resources again.
  2. Try dedicating one browser to one campus and a separate browser for the other campus

If neither of the solutions work, then please take a screen shot of the error and email the screen shot to the Library Staff at mcclibrary@ccsnh.edu.   They work with the Chancellor's Office Tech Team to resolve the problem.
