Periodical Titles in Transition

On a consistent basis the library goes through the process of “weeding” – meaning we clear out physical items or cancel online items that not being utilized in order to retain the most up useful resources for students, staff and faculty here at GRCC.  To balance out the decisions to drop titles, we are also continuously placing orders for new resources that will support the curriculum and benefit student studies.

The lists below identify magazine and journal titles which the library has recently, or will be discontinuing subscription to in the near future due to a variety of reasons.  You can also click on each title to be directed to the library catalog, if you are interested in seeing what issues are available in print and/or through online access.
