National Chocolate Day

chocolate dessertNational Chocolate Day was created by the National Confectioners Association. There are actually 3 National Chocolate Days throughout the year, on July 7th, October 28th and December 28th. We think that’s a great idea – more events to celebrate.

What does Chocolate have to do with an academic library?  GRCC has a terrific culinary collection supporting the Secchia Institute for Culinary Education.  Check out some of the books we have on chocolate!  While you’re at it, take a look at some of new culinary titles added to the collection!

Business Insights Global – It’s Back!

Business Insights GlobalEvery 5 (or so) years, the selection of databases freely available to us through MeL Michigan eLibrary changes.  Consequently last year, we lost  Business Insights Global.  Due to its cost, we decided to “go without.”  Since no other resource we licensed did what it does, we re-evaluated our budget, cut other items, and re-licensed  Business Insights Global.

This database “contains detailed company and industry profiles including SWOT reports, market share reports, and financial reports. Also includes thousands of company histories and industry essays as well as case studies, scholarly journals, and business news for deep research coverage of global economies.”  It’s perfect for “doing business in (name a country)” research, or when doing a deep dive into an industry or company.

Take a look at what this databases has to offer, as well as others on the Business Subject Guide. Off-Campus users should logon with 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].
