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.
Every semester, the Library publishes the CONNECT Library Faculty Newsletter to inform professors about new and changed services and collection. We hope you will share this news with your students. Please read our newest issue!
