Welcome to the GCIT Media Center! The Media Center is dedicated to fulfilling the informational and research needs of GCIT students and staff in a pleasant and productive environment.
The GCIT Media Center is a member of the LOGIN consortia, expanding the research capabilities of our users by providing access to collections of materials beyond those housed in the GCIT Media Center Library. For additional information about the LOGIN consortia select the LOGIN Libraries link on the navigational menu.
All books held by the GCIT Media Center are shelved using the Library of Congress classification number, which is the subject classification system developed for the Library of Congress and now used by most academic libraries. To access the online catalogs click the link below.
Students, faculty and staff are eligible to borrow materials from the Media Center at no cost. As a member of the LOGIN (Gloucester County Library System) consortia, users should obtain a free borrowers card from the library in their municipality. Any student living in a municipality not served by LOGIN may apply for a borrowers card in the Media Center.
Most books circulate for two weeks. Reference materials, current issues of print magazines do not circulate. Patrons may sign out 5 materials at one time. Books can be renewed for 4 weeks. There are no overdue fines, however, GCIT Administration will determine action to be taken for students who have overdue material. Patrons must pay for lost or damaged material. The price of a lost item will be the cost of replacing the item with the same or a work determined to be comparable. All materials borrowed from a LOGIN member lending library are subject to the policies of the lending library.
