ADA Services

ADA-compliant services include workstations for accessing the on-line catalog, the World Wide Web, counters at public service areas, tables and carrels, visual equipment for enlarging print resources, and restrooms.
Students requiring assistance using library resources are encouraged to contact Special Education Services (SPS-30) to arrange for aides to accompany them to the library.

Artwork

There is now an audio walking tour to add to your enjoyment of the art collection.  To hear the tour, check out a listening wand at the circulation desk.  The tour is self-paced, which allows you to select from the featured pieces of art as you move about the library.  We also have brochures available.  Most of the art was either purchased by the student government association or given to GCC as a gift.  The art curator is Darlene Goto, a faculty member in the art department.  For further information, please contact her at 623-845-3755.
