What Journals Do We Have in……?

eJournal PortalGRCC’s eJournal Portal provides access to always up-to-date lists of periodicals (journals, magazines, newspapers, newsletters, etc.) licensed for your use.  From the Library’s homepage, select [eJournal Portal] and limit your results to Journals only. Select the broad Subject you’re looking for – and drill down to select the more specific subcategory. For example, when seeking a list of  Nursing journals, choose [Health & Biological Sciences] and select the Nursing subcategory to discover 1059 links to eJournals!

Click through to the periodical of interest. If you’re on wi-fi or off-campus, you may be prompted for your last name and 7-digit Raider number.

[eJournal Portal] is great for browsing, but if you need to do a real literature search, be sure to use a database suggested on the appropriate [Subject Guide].
