Finding Children’s Books is Easier

Students will find multicultural children’s books in GRCC’s collection is a whole lot easier due to Cataloger Lori DeBie adding local descriptive subject headings into RaiderSearch Catalog. Lori also created dynamic catalog search links on the [Multicultural Children’s Literature] tab of the Children’s Literature Subject Guide, based on questions received at the Reference Desk.
