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


Electronic Resources

The library has a variety of electronic resources that enhance the curriculum of the College and meet the needs of students, faculty, staff, administration, and the community.

Electronic collections add thousands of reference, circulation and video titles to the library’s existing collection. It gives access to the library's collection online, using whatever mobile media available to the user, without limits on material availability or operating hours of the library.

Print Resources

The online catalog is a specialized database that lists books, videos, sound recordings, and other media formats in the library. It also provides the location of each item, its call number, the floor where it is shelved, and its availability.
