GRCC’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].

Do you have copyright questions? There are legal ways to avoid having to create expensive-for students-to-print course packs. Contact your assigned library liaison for assistance with questions about using copyrighted materials in Blackboard, class handouts, or in course packs.
Librarians can help you use RightFind Academic – Copyright Clearance Center‘s annual academic license. Be sure to create a logon while you are on-campus if you intend to use RightFind from off-campus. Librarians can help: verify citations; determine a copyright owner; set up a Course Reserve; or permalink licensed library resources into Blackboard. Please take a look at the Copyright Subject Guide.
A recent Chronicle of Higher Education article by Daniel Everett of Bentley University in Massachusetts considers that “the less comfortable we are, the more we learn.” Most of us understand the value of learning from diverse perspectives, but sometimes it’s hard to ensure exposure to multiple alternative points of view. GRCC’s Library provides two databases that make it easier to read about diverse perspectives:
Take a look at what those databases have to offer, as well as others on the News Subject Guide. Off-Campus users should logon with last name and 7-digit Raider number.
