RaiderLoan Article Ordering Re-Opens!

Article Borrowing through RaiderLoan has re-opened! We’re doing our very best to obtain the digital articles you need, and get them delivered to your GRCC email. See the RaiderLoan Document Delivery & Interlibrary Loan Subject Guide to place your article requests. Remember, if you need help finding great resources for your assignments, Ask-a-Librarian!

  • Borrowing books and videos through RaiderLoan and all MeL Michigan eLibrary borrowing is still suspended due to library closures. We’ll let you know as soon as you can start ordering those again.
  • If you currently have any interlibrary loan titles checked out, return them to us when the Library re-opens. Overdue fines from lending libraries will be waived.

Overdues? No Worries! (UPDATED)

If you checked out GRCC Library materials due anytime this year, the due date has been extended (again) and materials are now due Tuesday August 18, 2020.  Any GRCC overdue fines have been waived.

If you checked out interlibrary-loaned books (from other MeL or RaiderLoan libraries),  the due dates are not GRCC’s to extend. When classes resume in person,  please return those items to us as soon as possible and any interlibrary loan overdue fines will be waived.
