GC Library Services for Off-Campus Students & Faculty

When the library is closed, or you prefer to work remotely, there are many ways the library can provide you with expert help and services.  We provide assistance by phone (301-387-3022) and online through are email.

  • Online sources such as eBooks, eVideos, scholarly and news articles are available through the Online Catalog and our Research Databases.
  • Course Guides provide starting points, helpful tips, and resources specific to your classes. If your class is not listed in one of the Course Guides, try searching Guides By Subject.
  • Our Citation Guides will show you how to create properly formatted citations for your assignments
  • Librarians are available to meet with you individually for training in using our research databases or other library resources. Even if classes are taught online or in another location, we strive to keep email support lines open. 

Always check the Library's website for the latest information about our hours and services.

Off-Campus Access

Want to Return Library Items?

Books and media may be returned in person at the library or via the outside book return.  The outside book return is located outside the 600 building (facing the parking lot on Bumblebee Road).

If the library is closed when you need to return your items, they will be back-dated when we open again.  If an item is due and you cannot come to campus to return it (due to illness or other extenuating circumstances), please notify us and keep it until you are able to safely return it.
