Electronic Resources

Many distance education students are rarely on campus. If you can't make it to the library, let the library come to you. The library offers access to electronic resources including databases, e-journals, and e-books to all Germanna Community College students, faculty and staff.

These electronic resources are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from off campus. When prompted, enter your MyGCC (Blackboard) username and password for off campus access.
