Digital and Electronic Resources

Books: There are many electronic options for retrieving books. Before coming to campus, library users may wish to explore our Electronic Books options.

Databases/Journals: We also have a vast collection of electronic journal, magazine, newspaper, video, audio, and other electronic resources in our databases. Explore our databases to see if you can access materials that support your coursework, research, or personal interests from home.

Physical Books and Media

The library currently supports three ways to access materials from the physical collection. (See what's new in our phsyical collection.)

On campus access: The library is open and accessible for browsing library materials. Library materials may be brought to the Access Services desk or to our self-check machines for check out.

Pick-up service (placing "on-hold"): Students and faculty may request titles through their JCCC library account using their ID number and password. Pick up materials from the Access Services Desk. View your account here.

Delivery by mail: JCCC Students & Faculty can request books and media through the library’s online catalog to be sent to your home during the COVID-19 closure. Library staff will pull the material, users will be notified of its availability via email, and it will be available for pickup at the LIB 2nd floor circulation desk. The library will respond to requests via campus e-mail. Expect the books to arrive in 3 to 5 days. Material can be returned inside the campus or at the outside campus dropbox, located outside of the LIB building on its East side near the parking lot. Further questions about materials or Interlibrary Loan items/renewal can be asked here.
