Computer/Internet Access

Library workstations, both pc and laptop, in the Batavia Campus library provide access to the Internet, Microsoft Office software, and other educational software.  A variety of printing and downloading options are available at these workstations.

Laptops and other portable computing devices can connect to the GCC wireless network. 

Generally, library workstations are available on a first-come, first-served basis. At busy times, however, the following academic use priorities are applied so as to ensure students' fair access to resources:

  • GCC students have priority at all library workstations.
  • The primary purpose of all library workstations is for academic research and coursework.
  • Non-researchers may be asked to yield a workstation to users with academic research needs.

Computers are also available in the Student Resource Center Lab (T207) in the Conable Technology Building (Batavia campus), and at each Campus Center.
