Many of you will be working on GRCC assignments during the Thanksgiving Holiday. Your GRCC Librarians will be answering Ask-a-Librarian questions exclusively from Tuesday Nov. 24 through Sunday Nov. 29. The answers might come back a little slower than usual (hey – we’re on holiday break, too!) but you’ll get answers!
Have an APA citing question? Need a list of professional journals in your field? Can’t find a college-level article that explains the PRO-CONS of a topic? Need an eBook on <name your topic>? Wondering if an internet website is legit? Need to narrow a research topic to articles published in peer-reviewed journals?
We will help answer all of those questions – and yours, too. Contact a GRCC librarian via:
The American Psychological Association (APA) announced a revised version of their Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association in a 7th edition last Fall. The APA announced that the new version would supersede the 6th edition during Spring 2020 semester, and most GRCC academic departments decided to make the move to the 7th edition this semester.
At GRCC, APA Style is typically used by: Business; Communication; Criminal Justice; Dental Assisting; Dental Hygiene; Exercise Science; Gerontology; Medical Assistant; Nursing; Occupational Therapy Assistant; Pharmacy Technician; Phlebotomy; Psychology; Radiologic Technology; Social Work; and, Sterile Processing.
Ask-a-Librarian email reference requests are a great way to request assistance from GRCC Reference Librarians. You can also use OneSearch Chat, text us, call a Reference Librarian (616-234-3868), or, contact your department’s Liaison Librarian directly.
Ask-a-Librarian questions are answered during our Virtual Reference Service hours , and questions received outside those hours are answered first-thing on the next business day.
Ask-a-Librarian gives you the space to be complete when asking your question – enabling librarians to answer completely! Tell us which class your question relates to, about any assignment requirements, where you’ve already searched and what terms you used – and anything else that will inform librarians. Students and faculty tell us they like the ease of using Ask-a-Librarian, and that the answers are complete, helpful, and fast!
