    The Library Services for Distance Learning Guide is a pathway to research tools and resources. Distance Learning students and students at the Applied Technology Campus (ATC) and other off-campus instructional sites enjoy the same library privileges as on-campus students. See other Research Guides for subject-specific help and more!

    In support of this mission to create accessible learning opportunities, the GC Library works to create an environment conducive to our Distance Learners. We strive to provide the best possible service to students who prefer an alternate platform or are unable to attend classes on campus.

    Research Appointments

    Do you need help, but having a conversation over the computer or the phone won't be convenient? For more in-depth help, you can schedule a one-on-one reference appointment with a librarian. Each appointment can be up to an hour and can take place virtually, online, or in person. 

    We're here to help! If you have any questions or need assistance, feel free to reach out. We look forward to helping you with your research needs.
