Welcome to the (online) Lloyd Sealy Library! This guide is intended to serve as a one stop spot to provide information on the many and varied digital resources available to John Jay students, faculty and staff. Our library and librarians are here to help smooth our community's transition to a virtual learning environment. This guide will provide the information you need on where to go and how to access your library's electronic resources--ebooks, journals, magazines, newspapers, videos, statistics, tutorials and ereserves. You will also find referral information to college wide student and technology resources to help with your success in completing your coursework now that we have moved online.
The Lloyd Sealy Library librarians are committed to helping our students succeed. You may not be able to visit our library in person, but please know that we are here for you providing reference assistance through email and chat and our electronic resources are available 24/7.
In order to continue to provide services in a remote environment, the Library had to make some adjustments within the service areas listed below:
John Jay College's Distance Learning Success page features an uplifting and encouraging video address from President Mason as well as providing useful information for students and faculty on academic policies, research guidance during covid-19, and coronavirus updates of importance for the John Jay community.
Some helpful tips for effective learning for students in this new environment from Cornell University’s Learning Strategies Center:
• Getting Organized in Time and Space
• The Perils of Multitasking
• Learning from Video Lectures
• Being Flexible
• Remote Group Work
• Staying Connected with Other People
