Library Services and Resources for CollegeNow Students

As a high school or homeschooled student taking college-level courses through CollegeNow, you have access to the College's Library resources and services. This means you can use the library on the main campus and access the college's databases, films on-demand, and the ebrary collection-all from home.

  • At home and need help finding sources for a project? The library provides reference help via chat and text (607.545.4TC3) and uses GoToMeeting to show students how to search the catalog and databases on their home computer screen.
  • Need a tutor? The Baker Center for Learning offers one-on-one tutoring to online and on campus students in several subjects. Tutoring is offered both in-person and online. To sign-up for a tutoring session, go to the Baker Center for Learning's current tutoring schedule. Online tutoring is also available during the fall and spring semesters. Tutors are available for subjects ranging from Math to English to Business to Biology.
  • Prefer to do your reading from your tablet? You have full remote access to the college library resources, which now includes an ebrary of 70,000 books you can store for three weeks on your tablet or mobile device. While ebrary is an "academic" collection, it houses popular fiction as well.
  • Need a book mailed to your home? If you can't get to the main campus, you can still check out books. The librarians can mail books directly to your home and include a prepaid return address label.

Students are responsible for returning all borrowed materials, will be fined for lost or damaged items, and will not be issued an official transcript until fines are paid.

You can also access the library's guide for CollegeNow students. There are also several library services available for CollegeNow instructors.
