The Kraemer Family Library is excited to announce that current UCCS students, faculty, and staff can now sign up for a Pikes Peak Public Library (PPLD) College Account!

Registration for a Pikes Peak Public Library (PPLD) College Account provides access to PPLD's online resources, including eBooks, electronic audiobooks, streaming music and videos, music downloads, language instruction, and online courses. This account will not have a physical library card and will expire on August 14th of the following year. A new PPLD College account can be created Aug 15 or after each year you are enrolled or continue to work at UCCS. 

You may change your PPLD College Account to a full privilege PPLD account by visiting any of the PPLD libraries and showing a photo ID and proof of local address. A full privilege account allows checkout of a huge variety of titles and materials in the libraries, and access to the Video and Audio Recording Studios, and Makerspaces. For further information on library services and resources visit

To sign up for a PPLD College Account, use the link below. You will be asked to authenticate with your UCCS account and then enter your UCCS email account and choose a 4-10 digit PIN. Be sure to note the barcode number you are assigned and remember your PIN. You will receive a confirmation email the following morning that includes your barcode number and information about using your account to access PPLD's electronic resources.
