The Library is a good place to study and do research, with spaces reserved for conversation and collaboration and other areas for quiet individual study. You can also reserve a study room for groups of two or more. The Library also has several computers for student use, a book scanner and a color printer.
In general, college research requires the use of authoritative sources. Here are a few characteristics of authoritative sources:
The Library offers literally millions of sources for your research projects. In addition to our traditional books, you can remotely access our many databases and other licensed resources for newspapers, magazines, journals; research reports, hundreds of thousands of ebooks and more.
The Library is located on the second floor of the Deans Collaborative Learning Center (Building 15).
To access library databases from home or any other off campus location, you will need to log in using your JCC Network ID.
Your JCC Network ID is the combination of your first initial, your last name (all in lower case) and the month and day of your birth date (MMDD format). Omit spaces and punctuation. Your network password is your birthday, in six-digit format (MMDDYY). Here is an example:
ID = jdoe0605
Password = 060585
It is possible to change your password try resetting your password by logging into the Password Management Service.
If you are still having problems logging in even after you have tried to reset your password, contact the student help desk (315) 786-6511. Make sure you tell them you are an EDGE student.
Like all JCC students, you are welcome to visit the library and consult with one of our reference librarians if you’re having any trouble finding research material. You can also call us during our hours of operation at 315-786-2482.
You can get help from a qualified librarian 24/7 from our Ask a Librarian chat service us the chat widget below. Keep in mind that it won’t necessarily be one of our JCC librarians on the chat, but it will be a qualified librarian that will be able to help you with general research and resource related questions.
If you are accessing the library databases from an at home or any off campus location, then you will need to login using your JCC Network ID and password. This is the same login that you use for the JCC Portal and Blackboard.
If you are having trouble logging into any of these services then go to the JCC Password Management page where there are instructions on how to determine your JCC Network ID and way to reset your password if you need to. http://passwords.sunyjefferson.edu/
