EBSCOHost eBooks Upgrade Scheduled

During the week of May 5-12, 2021, the EBSCOHost eBooks collection will undergo a system upgrade. This starts during GRCC’s interim week when it likely impacts few students, but it continues until midweek of the first week of the Summer session. During this time:

  • Users will be able to read eBooks online and download eBook chapters, and read previously downloaded eBooks.
  • Users will not be able to download full eBooks to read offline.

EBSCOHost eBooks are searchable through the EBSCOHost eBooks Database, in Library Catalog and Library OneSearch results, and are often linked through Subject Guides as well as in individual Blackboard courses.

Nursing Test Prep Titles on Course Reserve

If you’re studying for the nursing HESI or NCLEX tests, take a look at the test preparation books GRCC has on Library Course Reserve. Test prep books are “hot” titles at GRCC.  When we can afford multiple copies, one copy is available for a short-term loan outside of the library, while the second copy is to be used in-the-Library-only.  That way, there is always one copy available for study (or for personally photocopying).  Few publishers will sell e-versions of test prep books to libraries; they just sell to individuals.

Take a look at the HESI/NCLEX tab on the Nursing Subject Guide. Please – be considerate of others waiting to use copies that can be checked outside of the library. Return test prep books on-time!
