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. They must also agree to wear their mask while using the book to lower the risk of contamination.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Please allow 48 hours for fulfillment from the time the library sends an acknowledgement of the request.
The Library has a Textbooks on Reserve Collection. Click on the link below to see a spreadsheet of textbooks (sorted by course) that we have. We do not have the textbook for every course at JCC. Some books are available online as an Open Educational Resource (OER) or as part of an eBook collection the library subscribes to. Links to items that are available online are included in the spreadsheet linked below.
Textbooks can be used for 2 hours in the library.
Bring your SUNY card to check out textbooks, books, laptops and more.
