Another Exam Cram down, finals to go!

The GRCC Library staff would like to wish students good luck on exams this week!  We hope that you were able to attend Exam Cram last week, if not we will be open normal hours this week so there is still time to get some studying done.  Also, we have some leftover snacks, stop in while they last!

Here are a few pictures of students using our new whiteboards and collaborative space, from last week’s event:

NEW Whiteboards @ the Library!

Prefer to work through math problems on a larger scale?  Looking for a space to visually brainstorm with your group?  Come in and check out the new whiteboards at the library!

Currently the mobile whiteboards are available on the second floor of the library, but keep an eye out for several more to be added to both the first and second floors for students to use.

Additionally, students are encouraged to check out “whiteboard kits” from the Circulation Desk, in order to use the boards.  The kits provide students markers and erasers necessary to use the whiteboards.

Journal Alert Services

Journal alert services let you know when a new issue of a full-text publication is available. Most database vendors offer an alert service. GRCC’s Library subscribes to several EBSCO databases which offer journal alerts, including:

Click the [Share] icon, and follow screen prompts to create your journal alert. Each time a new issue of your journal is available, you will receive an email with direct links to the articles in the new issue.

For more information and step-by-step instructions, visit the EBSCO Journal Alerts page.  Contact a librarian if you have questions or need help in connecting to your favorite journals.
