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].

Printing in the LLC

Print assignments, lecture notes, course syllabi, you name it – in the Library & Learning Commons (LLC). To do so, you must have value on your RaiderCard account, as the printers do not have coin-ops.Student using printer

When printing from a personal device, follow these instructions.

When printing from a networked computer, click [Print] and choose either the [Find_Me_Gray on Papercut] or the [Find Me Color on Papercut] printer.  Do you need single- or double-sided prints? Follow the computer screen prompts. Your document goes into Papercut’s print queue and stays there for the next hour.

With RaiderCard in hand, proceed to a library printer.  If you chose the [Find Me Color on Papercut] option,  use the color printer located in the center of the LLC’s first floor; otherwise any printer will do. Slide your RaiderCard to start the print process and up will pop the documents sent to the queue.  Follow screen prompts – and be sure to [Log off] when you are through.
