Please Return Technology

technology

Students, if you have stopped using your GRCC laptop (or other technology*) checked out from GRCC’s Library, please return it to the Circulation Desk immediately so we can check it out to students who need it.

We’re down to ZERO laptops to check out right now, although we have plenty of Chromebooks to lend. Chromebooks don’t work with lockdown browsers used for testing.

All technology is due back December 17. Laptops are on a timer which will lock out/close at the end of the Fall Semester, when IT will reimage and update them for Winter checkouts.

*Technology for check-out:

  • Laptops
  • Chromebooks
  • Wireless / mobile hotspots
  • Webcams
  • Headsets

Transfer Fair 2021 & Your Library

Transfer Fair poster

GRCC is hosting a Transfer Fair next Monday and you won’t want to miss it. It’s a great opportunity to meet representatives from multiple schools, and to ask questions about transfer requirements, transfer dates and deadlines. This event isn’t just for students ready to transfer – it’s for everyone who plans to transfer in the future.

Monday, October 18
10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
First Floor Applied Technology Center

To prepare for the Transfer Fair, librarians recommend that you check out the [Careers & Education] tab found on most Subject Guides. That tab includes information about jobs in a particular field, the job market, professional associations, as well as links to top transfer colleges and universities for your chosen major. You should also check out Transfer Out instructions here.

Haven’t figured out what you want to go into? Try the [Careers Interest & Skills Inventories] on the [Careers Subject Guide]. You may be surprised by some of the careers that match your interests and skills.
