The Library Homepage
The Library homepage provides access to various tools, such as, Ask a Librarian, Webinars & Workshops, Library Tutorials, and much more. Accessing the Library homepage does not require you to log in. Once either Find Books & More or Find Journal Articles has been accessed, the Library may request login information in order to view the resources.
Log in with your GCU username or GCU email address and password. Once signed in, no other login is necessary to enter any of the individual databases. If an individual database requests a login, you should speak to a Librarian about how to proceed.
All current GCU students can access the GCU Library. Students who have graduated will gain a limited alumni access through http://libguides.gcu.edu/alumni, but will not be able to access every Library resource.
