>> Events: Buhl Library Open House 1 - 4pm on September 4th | Faculty Book Talk 4:15pm on October 10th with Dr. Paul Kemeny & Dr. Gary Smith <<



Hello and welcome back! I hope you had a relaxing summer break. It's nice to see everyone back on campus. As you get back in to the swing of things while navigating your classes, working on assignments and papers, the staff and librarians at Buhl Library are here to help you!  Don't forget that you can stop in to ask us questions about assignments, research, how to use the library, citations. We love answering questions! So please don't hesitate to ask for help if you need it.

We have some exciting news about a new service in the library.  You can print any document you send to the GCCBW printers at the library! That's right, the Buhl Library photocopier/printer is now connected to the Pharos system!  

If you want to learn about other services we offer, we invite you to join us for our Open House on Wednesday September 4th from 1 - 4pm. Take a tour of the library, meet with library staff, enter to win prizes for attending and visit with therapy dogs. It's going to be a fun event and all are welcome to attend. Learn more about it below.

Last but not least, regular readers of the library newsletter may have noticed that the library newsletter has been redesigned. We added some new features like the movie and book recommendations and meet your library staff sections. We hope you enjoy learning about what's new in the library every month. We'd love to hear your feedback too. Share what you think about the new newsletter and suggest topics you'd like to hear about in the comment section below.

Have a great first month back!

Open House


Wednesday Sept 4, 2019 from 1 - 4pm

We're hosting our annual Open House event welcoming students, faculty and staff back to campus. This event is open to anyone who is interested in learning more about what resources and services we have to offer. Take a tour of the library, learn about our different collections, navigate how to find materials in our two floors of stacks, explore our digital databases, newspapers and journal collection and last but not least, meet with library staff. We're here to help you succeed during your time here at GCC!  

Along with library resources, departments from across campus will join us like Campus Ministries, The Office of International Education, The Academic Resource Center, The Office of Multicultural Education and Initiatives and the Curriculum Library. Stop by their tables to learn more. 

We strive to make our event informational and entertaining. To see the fun that we had last year, take a look at the photos below. Therapy dogs are always a huge hit in the library so we're bringing them back this year. Stop in to visit them. We're also giving away prize baskets this year that you can enter to win - including a Kindle! We hope that you will join us this year.

Pick up your Printouts at the Library!



The Buhl Library photocopier is now connected to the Pharos system on campus. That means that you can now pick up your printouts from inside the library. If you have any questions using our computers or photocopier ask the library staff at the front desk and we're always happy to help you.

Meet your Library Staff


Each month we will feature a Q&A with a Buhl permanent staff member or student worker from the library.

 Meet Barbra Munnell, Buhl Library Director


How long have you worked @ Buhl Library? Over 26 years. 20 years as Assistant Library Director, 6 as Director of Library Services, and I actually worked here when I was a student too!

Tell us a little about your educational background & work at GCC: I graduated from GCC in 1992 with a BA in Communication and Sociology. I received my Masters of Science in Library Science from Clarion University in 1994. I can mostly be found in my office which is located behind the check-out/reference desks. In addition to my duties as director, I select books for the collection (my favorite part of my job!). I also work at the reference desk anxiously awaiting questions from students.

Name 2 things that people might not know about you?

1.There are a few movies I can watch over and over again – Finding Nemo, Secretariat, Major League 1 & 2, and Shawshank Redemption.

2. I have been a part of the GCC community since 1988.
