This guide will assist you in finding information in the JSCC Library that may help you in your Dual Enrollment class.

Finding a book

You have access to over 37,000 printed books and 220,000 electronic books.  These books can give you an in-depth look at many different types of topics.

To find printed and electronic books in the JSCC Library, use the Online Catalog.

You will be asked for your Netlogon to access the electronic books in the Online Catalog.

Accessing the JSCC Library from Home

When you access the JSCC Library electronic databases or electronic books, you will be prompted for a username and password.  This is your Netlogon that you received when you registered.

If you haven't created your Netlogon, go to jWeb.

Scroll down the page until you see "Netlogon tools"

Fill out the form (your campus ID is your J number).  You will be given a username by the system and you will be asked to create your password. 

Be sure to write your username and password down somewhere.
