Update for Spring 2020
While the CGCC Libraries are closed, we continue to provide remote support for both faculty and students.
All borrowed materials will have their due dates automatically extended to the end of the semester, May 7th. Students, faculty, and staff can still place holds on materials, however due to the library closures, materials will not be available until after the MCCCD libraries re-open. Additionally, we will not be filling inter-library loans at this time. If you currently have an item that is from another library system, please contact email@example.com with any questions.
Critical Research Instruction
We continue to provide research support for your students in the remote teaching environment. If you need research support and haven't scheduled already, please contact Kim Chuppa-Cornell if your class is typically held at Pecos or Monica Johnson if your class is typically held at Williams or the Communiversity.
Adding library material into your Canvas course/OER
CGCC Library's streaming video and eBook databases have content you can use for your remote teaching. The attached guide provides instructions for four of our best-fit databases you might want to explore.
If you'd like assistance with these databases, please contact Mary Beth Burgoyne, Library Faculty, firstname.lastname@example.org or Barbara Howe, Library Faculty, email@example.com
Library Reserves Textbook Access
Follett has partnered with RedShelf and other publishers to provide free access to up to 7 ebook textbooks. Try searching by textbook's ISBN to determine if your course's textbook is available through this program. (Library staff found several CGCC course textbooks available in the service.)
