Finding a book

  • JSCC Library Online Catalog
    The JSCC Library Online Catalog provides access to printed and electronic books available in the JSCC Library.

    To check out a book from the library, you will need your JSCC photo ID.

    You can look at electronic books right on your computer. If you are on campus, you can read them right away, but if you are off-campus, you will be asked for your Netlogon. (the way you log on to computers on campus)

Google Books

Google Books allows you to look at excerpts of books in many different subject areas.  You cannot print or cut and paste from Google Books, just read the texts.

However, books from Google Books can be requested through the JSCC Libray interlibrary loan service.  It takes about 2 weeks to get a book back from another library, so please give yourself some time.
