Periodicals – that “library” word for a title which is published at different intervals – daily, weekly, monthly, bimonthly, quarterly, annually, etc. The word “periodicals” is often used interchangeably with magazines or journals or newspapers, which actually denote different periodical tools for different audiences.
At GRCC, your instructor will often assign you to read periodicals of one kind or another, depending on the class, the assignment, and/or to introduce you to the peer-reviewed professional literature in your chosen field. Take a look at the periodicals in your field by viewing the [Periodicals] tab on your department’s [Subject Guide]. And, if you want to know more about periodicals in general, see the [Periodicals Subject Guide].
GRCC’s Library has about 400 current print subscriptions to periodicals shelved on the Library’s second floor – but, as you can imagine – we have over 40,000 online subscriptions! Use [eJournal List] to determine which periodicals we get online, and which database they can be found. Use your last name and 7-digit Raider number to access eJournals from off-campus.
The Scientific & Medical ART (SMART) Imagebase is a collection of 20,000+ high quality downloadable illustrations and animations depicting anatomy, physiology, surgery, diseases, conditions, trauma, embryology, histology, and other health science topics. Users may use the images for educational, non-commercial use in assignments, lectures, presentations, and on web sites.
A GRCC student who anticipates knee replacement surgery viewed a medical animation of that procedure. Teacher education students use it for K-12 lesson plans. A&P students use the coloring book pages to help them retain their knowledge of anatomical structures. Professors and tutors in Anatomy & Physiology, Dental, Nursing, OTA, RadTech, Continuing Ed General Health, and Exercise Science programs use this resource a lot!
Logon to SMART Imagebase from the Database page, as well as from links on many allied health Subject Guides.

February is Great American Pie Month. Who decided that, I do not know, but I highly support anything that honors Pie’s place in America! And, not just Apple Pie!

The best way to celebrate it has to be throwing a pie party.

Bake a pie you’ve never made before
Eat some pie for breakfast
Make a pot pie for dinner
Cheat one night (or two) and order a pizza pie
Let everyone make their own mini pie
