Library & Media Services

Welcome to our new library management system! The C-GCC Library, along with all SUNY Libraries, migrated to a new system, ALMA/PRIMO, on June 26, 2019. PRIMO is the C-GCC Library’s new discovery single search interface that provides access to scholarly content, including print and digital collections.



General Information

People in the college community and residents of Columbia and Greene counties, sixteen or older, may get library cards (please bring ID). To obtain a library borrowing card, a Columbia or Greene County patron must present adequate documentation to prove county residency. Acceptable documentation includes:

  • NYS driver’s license with county address
  • NYS non-driver ID with county address
  • Other photo ID AND proof of address such as tax or utility bill to a county address in the name of the individual applying for a borrower’s card.

Others are welcome to use the library but may not borrow.

We particularly welcome high school students doing school research.

Remote access to our online database subscriptions is available to all currently enrolled C-GCC students.
