End of Semester Reminders 



1. How to access electronic resources from home

Access via the college's VPN

To access the library's online ebooks, journal articles, newspapers and more you will need to be connected to the college's VPN (virtual private network).

What is it a VPN and why do I need to connect to it? 

This allows you to access all of the library's over 100 databases seamlessly without the need to sign in separately with a username/password for each database. The VPN automatically authenticates that you are a GCC student and gives you access. The college uses the Global Protect VPN.

  • If you are a freshman student you have the Global Protect VPN installed on your computer. Look for the gray world icon in your computer's taskbar. For instructions on how to sign in see the instructions below. 
  • If you are a sophomore, junior or senior student and you do not see the Global Protect VPN in your computer's taskbar (look for a gray world icon) you will need to install it on your computer before getting started. See the instructions below to download it.

How do I download it? 

You can download the Global Protect VPN using the instructions below. If you have problems with installing the VPN or questions about entering your GCC username/password the Technological Learning Center (TLC) can be reached by phone: 724-458-2255 or by email at

Meet your Library Staff


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

 Senior Student Worker Spotlight 


Meet Caroline Kaucher! 

What is your major? French

Do you have any post-graduation plans? I will be starting a Construction Engineering job in the DC area this December.

What is one of your favorite books and why? I just read The Color Purple by Alice Walker this past summer and it quickly became one of my favorite books. I really appreciate how Walker, from the style of writing to the characters themselves, wrote a "real" story that was up-front, in your face, and there was nothing to hide. She presents the readers with an honest portrayal of people, showing the good and the bad, but also allowing for some form of redemption for each character.

How has the library helped you during your time here at Grove City College? Working at Henry has been one of the biggest blessings at Grove City College. The people here, librarians and fellow student workers, are unbeatable and I wouldn't trade my time with them for the world. The kindness and just general care to get to know one another is something I appreciate most about this library. After graduation, I will definitely be missing all my chats with the librarians during shifts.



Buhl Library staff wish to sincerely thank Caroline for all of her hard work over the past few years while working at the library. She has been a wonderful asset to the library assisting patrons, library staff and fellow student workers with kindness, a helpful attitude, and a great sense of humor. Caroline, we wish you all the best on your next adventure! It has been a joy working beside you. Thank you for all that you do. 

Library Resources We're Thankful For


Thankful - Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania Collection -- This resource contains full runs and portions of runs of regional & state titles in addition to small local newspapers in Pennsylvania. Coverage varies with newspaper.

Ebsco Discovery Service

I'm thankful for our Discovery Search! it’s a great way to get started when doing library research. Especially in the times now where we can’t always get to the library, you can get started here with “Research Starters” – an authoritative encyclopedia entry about your topic with background information including names, dates, and keywords to begin your search. "

EBSCO eBook Collection

I'm thankful for our Ebsco ebooks this year. They have been tremendously helpful in providing great titles for researchers at a time when ILL isn't available and/or people haven't been able or comfortable visiting the library. I've even found some wonderful titles for my own leisure reading!

Citing Sources Subject Guide

Our citing sources subject guide is well loved and used by students and librarians alike! If you need help with any citation style you'll find electronic copies of manuals and trustworthy web resources with all of the examples and sample papers needed to correctly cite your sources. 

Naxos Music Library

Online classical music library. Perfect for easy listening wherever you're working or studying. Did you know according to a University of Maryland Medical Center study music helped reduce stress and anxiety levels among listeners. Listening to music, especially classical music can help you with focus according to a study done by Stanford. So the next time you're prepping for that next exam check out what Naxos has to offer. 

Bible Commentary eBooks

We have continued to add a growing collection of electronic bible commentaries this semester to assist students who may not be able to physically come into the library to use these resources. You can check them out in our EBSCO eBook collection. You can also search by book of the bible or if you're looking for a specific commentary series. 

Blast from the Past Photo Collection


Buhl's Blast from the Past

Buhl's Yellow Book Road

Reminiscent of the famous yellow brick road in The Wizard of Oz, Buhl's original brown and yellow tile in the first and second floor stacks was original to the building in 1954. 

Use the arrow on the right to see how our stacks area recieved a makeover in 2010. 

Goodbye Old Tile!

Librarian (now our current director), Barbra Munnell is very excited about the prospect of new carpet! 

Hello, New Carpet!

The new carpet was installed in the summer of 2010 and it's the same carpet you'll find in the stacks if you visit our building today. 

What's New?


PLEASE NOTE: Our New Book Display has been temporarily removed and the books have been moved into our general collection. You can still browse the newest books and featured collections from the library online on the landing page for our online catalog, HENRY.
