Rock stars die and the whole world mourns – and we’re used to that. Seldom, however, does the death of an academic – especially in a field like physics – touch so many people worldwide. That describes the passing of world-renowned physicist Stephen Hawking. The BBC has an excellent short list of articles about his life and work. GRCC’s Library has several of Hawking’s books which are quite accessible for general readers. Learn something new about astrophysics – and the philosophy of life.
Take a look at these neat streaming videos recently added to GRCC’s e-collections! This month, Films on Demand (FOD) added over 300 new videos – on topics spanning: business marketing; careers; communications; criminal justice; environment; ethics; gerontology; health; hospitality; psychology; social geography; to, technology. Videos contain either closed captioning or transcripts, so FOD meets GRCC’s accessibility guidelines.
For more options in streaming video, see the Multimedia & Image Resources Subject Guide.
