Faculty Resources: Services

This guide provides information about library services available to PGCC faculty.

Services

Circulation Services


The library building (Accokeek Hall) is closed to the public. All library services that require a physical presence (reserves, computers, scanners, study rooms, circulation of print books, etc.) are unavailable at this time. However, all of our electronic resources are still available for remote use. 

Regarding library materials during the closure, here are some reminders:

  • Hold onto books and other materials until PGCC reopens
  • Fines incurred during the closure will be waived
  • Book drops are closed
  • Please do not leave materials outside the library
