Books and More

JTCC Libraries' book collection contains nearly 50,000 volumes, all of which can be searched using QuickSearch. QuickSearch includes the books, DVDs, e-books, audiobooks, streaming films, and some article resources on both campuses and online. 

Books and DVDs can be requested from either campus through QuickSearch. Transferring titles between campuses generally takes 1-2 business days. Request titles online anytime, or ask any library staffer for assistance.

E-books are accessible both on and off campus. Visit the complete list of eBook resources here

Audiobooks are available online through our subscription with Overdrive.  Use your myTyler login to check out titles. Titles cannot be downloaded to JTCC computers.

DVDs and streaming videos run the gamut from history to art, from classics to popular movies. All of these materials are indexed in QuickSearch.  Access to streaming videos is available from the Films on Demand database. 

Article Collections

The JTCC Library, the VCCS, and the Virtual Library of Virginia (VIVA) work together to bring access to millions of articles through subscription databases. These collections range from general subjects to discipline specific, giving many options to both faculty and students. Many articles are available in full-text and allow for linking within your BlackBoard courses for easy dissemination.
