Copyright Assistance and Your GRCC Library

GRCC professors know that they must ensure US Copyright compliance as they populate and update learning materials in Blackboard, but they may not know that Department Liaison Librarians can help verify citations and help determine a copyright owner.  Liaison librarians can show you (and your departmental colleagues) how to create online linking solutions that are copyright compliant, and can guide you through the process of obtaining your copyright clearance online.   copyright symbol

New Streaming Video – take a look!

Take a look at these new streaming videos  from Alexander Street Press and Films on Demand.  Faculty will be interested to learn that most already contain closed captioning or a simultaneous transcript as required for use on campus by Academic Governing Council policy.  If that accessibility feature is not yet available, the vendors tell us that it will be in less than a month.    For more resources, see the Multimedia and Image Resources Subject Guide.

Database Spotlight: Ethnic NewsWatch

Ethnic NewsWatch  is a terrific resource when you need to read viewpoints from ALL sides of a story on an event or issue. I recommend to students in anthropology, communications, business, fashion, government, history, sociology, and, education.  It is an interdisciplinary, bilingual (English and Spanish) and comprehensive full-text database of the newspapers, magazines and journals of the ethnic, minority and native press. It was designed to provide the “other side of the story;” ENW titles offer additional viewpoints from those proffered by the mainstream press.

You’ll find Ethnic NewsWatch on the Library’s Database page, as well as on several Subject Guides.  On-campus networked users can click right into the database.  Off-campus and wireless users need to logon with last name and 7-digit Raider number.   Try it today!
