JCC Library Services for Distance Learners: Finding Books

Services and resources available at JCC's Library

Checking out books from JCC

JCC students need a SUNY card to check out books.

Books circulate for 3 weeks. JCC students can borrow up to 6 books at a time, 3 on a subject. Other college students and community members are restricted to 3 books at a time.

Books may be renewed over the phone as long as they are not yet overdue. Call 315-786-2225 to renew a book. You can also log into your library account in CannonCat and renew your books.

Print and Electronic Books

Use the JCC online catalog - CannonCat - to find books we have in the library.

You can get full text electronic books through Search Almost Everything. Do a search in the search box on the library home page and then restrict your results to ebooks using the limiters in the left column of the results page. Electronic books are easy to use - and a great resource for online learners!

Passwords: You may be asked to login when you click on a link to a database or an electronic book. Use your MyJCC user name and password. If you do not know your MyJCC user name and password, look at the library handout "Accessing the JCC Databases from Your Home or Office". If you still have trouble, ask for help from Instructional Technology by contacting the StudentHelpDesk. Call 315-786-6511 or toll free 1-888- 435-6522, and ask for the Help Desk.

Reference E-Book collections

JCC has several databases that provide reference books - encyclopedias, dictionaries, etc. in e-book form. You can find them listed on the JCC databases page. Read the instructions for passwords in the box above if you don't know how to log in.
