Ask-a-Librarian during the Thanksgiving Holiday

Many of you will be working on GRCC assignments during the Thanksgiving Holiday. Your GRCC Librarians will be answering Ask-a-Librarian questions exclusively from Tuesday Nov. 24 through Sunday Nov. 29. The answers might come back a little slower than usual (hey – we’re on holiday break, too!) but you’ll get answers!

Send your questions to Ask-a-Librarian!

And until then, we are answering questions through all virtual modalities during Virtual Reference Hours!
