New MeL Database: NoveList Plus

NoveList Plus iconIf you’ve ever wondered what to read next, then NoveList Plus  might be for you!

NoveList Plus is the premier online database for reading recommendations. Helping readers of all ages find just the right book to read, this comprehensive source of popular and professional book information includes expert recommendations, reviews, articles, lists and more.

While GRCC’s library is not big into fiction, (we have a small fiction leisure reading collection on the 2nd floor), we can get any book you’re interested in through MeLCat or RaiderLoan Document Delivery and Interlibrary Loan – for free!

If you’re off-campus or using wireless, you may be asked to log on with your last name and 7-digit Raider number.

Exam Cram a Success!

Another successful Exam Cram “goes down in the books” (pun intended)!  Students mentioned how much they appreciated and enjoyed snacks and beverages, the Weaving Workshop led by Jennifer Ackerman-Haywood,  three different Meditations led by Emily Nisley, drop-in tutoring with Academic Support & Tutoring Services, librarian help with “works cited” lists, and, especially, extended building hours (10 am – 10 pm) on Saturday and Sunday.
