Welcome Back to Campus! It's time for you to Fall Into the Library! 

The library team would like to welcome the students, faculty, and staff back to campus.

What's going on in the library? Well, we have been working to streamline services and update our collections. The library stacks are under library construction, so if you see empty shelves and books shuffled around, look for something new soon! We have new research tools and lots of new titles for you to check out! 


Book Returns. We know you have enjoyed keeping the library books longer than expected, but it is time to return them to the library. All fines, fees, and holds were forgiven over the course of the COVID-19 campus closure, we will begin posting fines and fees after September 11th.

Book return is open now through Friday, September 11th. Books not returned by September 11th will incur late fees and/or replacement costs.

All books must be returned to the exterior book drop located in the hallway outside of the library to the right of the entrance. Books will not be accepted by library staff at the circulation desk.

Did YOU Know?

Did you know?

Did you know that the great state of Texas launched the digital repository of open educational resources (OER) for Texas students and educational institutions? Seriously, as of today, September 1st, OERTX Repository is available for YOU to Explore, Create, and Collaborate! OERs are needed more now than ever as we transition into virtual learning environments.  

For your convenience, we added the OERTX Repository to the library A to Z Database page! If you do not know how to access the A to Z Database page, watch the brief video tutorial below on how to access the library A to Z Database page and get a quick overview of OERTX! 


Please view the GC Library's Open Educational Resource guide to learn more about the OERTX Repository

Thanks to Carmen Allen, Director of Institutional Effectiveness and Research for keeping us abreast of changes from the TX Higher Education Coordinating Board that are related to the library and the college's OER initiatives.
