But I needed that PRINT book!

Libraries are closed across the country, so access to print titles, most Course Reserves, and Interlibrary Loan is not possible.  GRCC Librarians offer these alternatives:

  1. Ask-A-Librarian to see if there are alternate resources that will fill your need and accomplish the same goal.VitalSource graphic
  2. Need a textbook? Check out VitalSource on our Virtual Services Subject Guide to see if your textbook is included.
  3. If the book you need has an older copyright date, try out the FREE Internet Archive’s National Emergency Library project.   It’s already helped GRCC students multiple times!Internet Archive logo

Librarians are working to help you be successful.  Stay in touch!

We*Are*Here*For*You

We are here for you boxIt’s true, students and faculty – HERE meaning that – while the Library building is closed – we ARE available by phone, email, Ask-a-Librarian, and OneSearch Chat. GRCC Librarians are available during all the hours we normally provided in-person reference service:

  • Monday – Thursday: 7:30 AM – 8:00 PM
  • Friday: 7:30 AM – 5:00 PM
  • Saturday: 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM

… and our service-oriented librarians often answer your questions outside those hours because we want you to be successful.

You’re not alone – and you’re certainly not without quality resources to use for assignments.  We hope to hear from you!
