Use the Library 24/7

The CR Library is available for you every day of the year, all day (and night!)  We have over 170,000 eBooks that you can access from anywhere with an internet connection, right on your computer, as well as journal articles, databases, videos, and more. 

Online Books and Videos

One Search Logo

The library has over 170,000 electronic books and streaming videos available for you to use from on and off campus.  To locate these materials in the Library catalog (and save yourself a trip to campus) use the "Advanced Search" feature of the catalog.  You'll see a screen with options to Limit your search.  By checking "Electronic Book" or  "Online Video" before you enter your search terms, you can tell the catalog to only display items you can access online.

Journals and Databases

Nearly 40 online databases are available around the clock to CR students, including  many which provide access to full-text journals and periodicals as well as other resources.

Remote Login Required

If you are off campus or using a wireless device while on campus, you may be prompted to login to get into the database. This is what you will see:

Remote login is required to prove that you are a student at College of the Redwoods, because these library databases are not free, open website available to anyone. Library resources are valuable and often expensive, because the information provided is reliable, credible, and based on a lot of work by many people. The library pays for student, faculty, and staff access.
