What can I access with my GRC/KCLS log in?

Your log in will give you access to King County Library System online resources that are linked to through the "KCLS for College Students" portal. This includes databases, streaming video, and eBooks.

Your GRC/KCLS log-in is not the same as a KCLS library card-- if you want to check out physical items, place holds, reserve a computer for use at a branch library, or print at a KCLS branch, you will want to use your KCLS card and PIN.
