    On and off-campus access to the GC Library's licensed online resources is available to current GC students, faculty & staff. To use these resources, you must authenticate via OpenAthens; more information is below. 

    Connecting On and Off-Campus

    When accessing licensed library resources, students, faculty, & staff, will be prompted to sign in using their GC email address and password

    Sign-in Tips:

    • Using auto-fill or a password manager to log in can be problematic.
    • You may trigger a lockout that can last up to 30 minutes. Multiple attempts during this time will reset the lockout timer. Please refrain from repeated login attempts if you have trouble logging in.
