About this Guide

Welcome to this GCC "Textbooks and More - Library Reserves Guide"

In light of copyright restrictions only a small number of textbooks are available in their entirety online through the library.  Please see links to the left for access to books and video.  

Other course materials and limited portions of your textbook may be available online via the E-Reserves program in your Canvas course shell under Library Resources. 

If you see your course listed here (https://guides.gccaz.edu/textbooks), you should be able to find some course materials in your class Canvas shell under the Library Resources tab.

If you don't find what you're looking for, please contact GCC library.

Also, be sure to communicate with your instructor. They are in the best position to help you navigate your course while you try to obtain the materials and may be the best resource to help you find a solution.
