Catalog and Student Handbook

The library provides a variety of resources for research and study as well as leisure reading. These services are available to students, faculty, staff and the community. There are three library locations: the Locust Grove Campus, Fredericksburg Area Campus and Daniel Technology Center in Culpeper. Library services include: in-person research assistance, individual and classroom instruction, intercampus and interlibrary loan, reserve services, and media viewing and listening. Online research assistance is provided to current students, faculty and staff by professional librarians 24/7 through LRC Live.

The library provides access to over 80,000 electronic books, 30,000 books in the circulating collection, and over 10,000 online full-text journal articles, many of which are peer-reviewed.  There are also approximately 120 print periodicals available among the three locations; these can be transported between campuses, upon request. Additionally, the library provides access to over 100 databases. The library’s web site, http://www.germanna.edu/library, gives access to resources, services and other relevant information such as hours and recommendation forms. Library users can locate books in all formats and media material in any GCC library through VCCSLinc, the online library catalog. Online resources may be accessed from college computers as well as remotely from computers off-campus. Use your myGCC logon ID and password for remote access.   

All library collections are continually updated and improved through a collection development program that actively encourages faculty participation and library user feedback.
