Use the Journal List tab, which is part of the catalog search box on the Library home page.

Use the Databases tab, part of the catalog search box on the Library home page, to search our databases by subject and view descriptions of each database we offer.

Enter the same username and password you use to log into E-mail, Self Service and Blackboard.

If you have trouble getting in, call the GCU Information Technology team at 732-987-2222. If you have problems with connecting to the databases and your password is correct, call the reference desk 732-987-2422 to see if there are any problems on our end.

Go to databases and type in your search, then read article abstracts. Once you know you want the article, look for links to “PDF Full Text,” “HTML Full Text,” or “Find Full Text.” If it only lists “Find Full Text,” you will have to go through a few more steps to see if we own it online or in print.

First, log into Blackboard Learn.

  • Choose content collection in the upper-right hand menu.
  • Search for the course you are enrolled in.
  • Choose “library content” on the left and follow links in the folder to the articles. If you have any problems, contact the reference desk at 732-987-2422 or reference@georgian.edu

Visit the circulation desk and mention your professor’s name and the course you’re enrolled in. You’ll need to show your Student ID card and mention the title of the item you’re looking for.

In order to get an article we do not own, you will need at least a week to process an interlibrary loan. Complete the interlibrary loan form. If you’re not sure what kind of source you have or which form to fill out (i.e. journal article, book chapter, book review, etc.), please call the reference desk at 732-987-2422 and we can guide you through the process.

Contact the circulation desk at 732-987-2419 or email circulation@georgian.edu.

The second floor of the library is designated as a quiet space.

Group rooms are available on the lower level of the library. Groups have priorities over individuals in using them. View our facilities including floor plans.

If an item already checked out is considered critical to your work, it may be recalled.  Recalled materials are due within 14 days of notification to the current borrower.

A hold is a request to be the next borrower when an item is returned. The current borrower will not be permitted to renew an item with a hold. A hold can be requested at the circulation desk or online.

Use the MyGCU sign-in once in the library catalog. There you will find options to renew your books. You can also renew books by bringing them to the circulation desk at the front of the library.
