Welcome to the JCC Libraries eBooks Guide

The JCC Libraries offer access to eBooks through a number of Web-based services.  Some allow for the easy download of complete eBooks to your PC or mobile device, while others allow you to search their content and download only articles or chapters in the books. 

To access the JCC Libraries eBook collections, you will need:

  • To be a JCC student, faculty or staff member, or a library card-holding resident of the college's service area.
  • A computer with access to the Internet.  (For community residents, some eBook access is limited to use in one of the campus libraries)
  • The appropriate software for the device(s) on which you wish to access the eBook.

 If you don’t have a card? Here's how you can get one.
