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.
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:
Discovery Tool (discover books, articles & streaming video)
VitalSource (free e-textbook rentals)
Many textbook publishers have joined to provide commonly-used texts as free rentals online providing instant downloads for students who are now engaging in online learning for this semester. Please use your SJC email when setting up your account.
JSTOR has expanded access to our existing collections through June 30, 2020.
