Admission to the Library
Curbside Pick-up / Returning
Although the Library is open, if you prefer to not enter the building you may request curbside pick-up or returns.
Returns from Outside the Area
If you live outside the area and need to return library materials, contact us to make arrangements to do that. You may contact us by calling 315-786-2225 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org
Library Loans and Collections
The book collections are open for access and browsing. Place books you handle, yet do not wish to borrow on the carts that are provided. Returned/browsed library materials will be quarantined for three days per current industry standard.
Synchronous Instruction and Zoom Rooms
The Library has eight rooms designated as Zoom Rooms. These rooms allow students enrolled in synchronous classes to utilize Zoom, or another online platform, which requires audible participation. These rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis only. All students must use headphones for this type of activity to decrease distracting others.
Group Study Rooms
Group study rooms are designated as Zoom Rooms at this point. Groups may work in other available library spaces; please contact a staff member if you need assistance locating an appropriate place to work.
Textbooks on Reserve
The Library carries some textbooks currently used by JCC courses. These may be borrowed for up to two hours for use in the library only. Staff will wipe down the outside covers between textbook loans. Borrowers may use our textbooks with the knowledge that we are not putting them in a three-day quarantine between uses, which is the current accepted practice in libraries. Students must sanitize hands before and after each textbook use.
The JCC Library will provide students, faculty and staff with pdf scans from books and textbooks in our collection on request. Staff will supply scans of one chapter or 20 pages per request, whichever is larger. Make requests by calling 315-786-2225 or emailing email@example.com. Please allow 48 hours for fulfillment from the time the library sends an acknowledgement of the request.
