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.
