Off-Campus Library Support: Mobile Apps and Sites

Library resources and services in support of our off-campus and online students and faculty.

TJC Mobile

Grab your Smartphone and search the TJC website below with our user-friendly mobile interface.

Mobile Subject Guides

The library's subject guides automatically detect mobile devices and provide you with an easy to use mobile interface for searching. Try it out at the link below.

App vs Mobile Web Site

A mobile website is similar to any other website except that its screen has been optimized to fit the smaller handheld and touch-screen devices.

An app (application) is downloaded to your mobile device. A native app is specific to the operating system of your device, such as Apple, Android and Blackberry.

Search From Your Mobile Device

The following mobile apps are provided to you free through the TJC Library's database subscriptions. Just follow the easy steps provided by each vendor to download them on your mobile device.

Apps for EBSCOhost Databases

EBSCOhost databases automatically recognize mobile searches and will provide you with their mobile interface. The iPad and some tablets will have the EBSCOhost full site that's been optimized for the tablet screen. Databases that are provided through an interface other than the EBSCOhost version will render the full site view rather than the mobile version. Examples of this are Literary Reference Center and Points of View Reference Center.

Gale Database Apps

Simply follow the rules at the link below to download the free Access My Library College Edition app from iTunes or the Google Play store.
