Update for Spring 2020‚Äč
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 circ@cgc.edu 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, mary.burgoyne@cgc.edu or Barbara Howe, Library Faculty, barbara.howe@cgc.edu

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.) How to create an account and additional information can be found at https://studentresponse.redshelf.com/

‚ÄčOrdering Materials from other Libraries 

The purpose of Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Service is to obtain, whenever possible, materials not available in the Chandler-Gilbert Community College Library collection for the educational and research needs of the college community. This may include, but is not limited to, books, articles in periodicals, and documents. Materials may be obtained from other libraries, both in this country and throughout the world.
Requests are usually filled in 3 to 7 days from libraries within the Maricopa County Community College District (MCCCD), but allow a minimum of 2 to 6 weeks for requests outside of the District. This service is free for most requests. Some libraries may charge a fee.
‚ÄčIf you need any assistance in setting up your ILLiad account, please contact the Pecos Library, Circulation Services, 480-857-5102 or Williams Library, Circulation Services at 480- 988-8611.

‚ÄčPersistent Linking

This guide gives instructions on how to add CGCC Library's eBook and streaming video content to your remote or online teaching.


In addition to the rich content provided by the CGCC Library's databases, their additional features include: 

  1. Public Performance Rights: You can show the film in online or face-to-face classes or at a college-sponsored event, without violating copyright.

  2. Transcripts and Closed Captioning: The streaming videos/films include transcripts and closed captioning. These are ADA-compliant accessibility tools required by MCCCD for media content used in instruction regardless of the modality.

  3. Translate and Listen:  Some database vendors include LISTEN and TRANSLATE tools for the HTML editions of the articles. These tools support English as a Second Language and students with audio learning preferences. 

‚ÄčScheduling a Critical Research Class

  • CGCC Library Faculty will design a hands-on, interactive Critical Research class tailored to your specific assignment and student needs; we use a "just-in-time" approach in that we teach students the skills, strategies, and sources they need for your project.

  • For more information regarding scheduling, contact the library faculty listed on the Critical Research page.
