SJC Libraries homepage: https://www.sjcny.edu/libraries

About this Guide

This guide is intended to highlight and facilitate access to the many remote services that the SJC Libraries provide as we continue to offer virtual reference and research services to students and faculty to support distance instruction. Links and details for many remote library services are contained in this guide, and additional resources may be added as deemed appropriate.  We can address questions regarding electronic & digital resources, including but not limited to e-books, streaming video, and other resources and services.

Circulating & Checked-out Materials

All materials borrowed during the Spring 2020 semester have been renewed until May 31, 2020. All overdue fines and fees accrued during this period have been waived.  Since the college is closed it is not possible to accept returns at this time. Please hold on to borrowed materials and disregard any automated overdue notices that may be generated inadvertently.

You may access your library account via one of the following links:
