REMINDER: it's highly unlikely that you will receive zero results for a search on any of these topics, but if you do, then be sure to check your spelling - that's usually the problem.

When you want to access an e-book from the results list, click on the title and on the page describing the book, find the box that has the link to the online version and click where noted.  


You will next be asked to sign in GCC's Portal Login (the same login you use to access Canvas) and after you sign-in successfully, you will see a description of the title. You then have the choice of reading the book online or in some cases, the ability to download to your personal device.  


Note that not all platforms that the Library uses for e-books currently have this download capability, but all e-books can be read on a computer with internet access.  For ebooks from ProQuest Ebook Central, see this guide for instructions on how to download ebooks to your computer or mobile device:

For books from other platforms, please ask for help from a Librarian on whether or not it is possible to download (see below).
