Spring Break update

Librarians are on Spring Break, too, but we’re checking Ask-a-Librarian at least once a day until the Library reopens on Monday, March 12.  If you need assistance, send us an Ask-a-Librarian question.  We’ll get back to you!

Don’t know where to get started with your literature search?  Select a Subject Guide tailored to the academic department where you are taking the course. It lists the databases most likely to be of use, lists of periodicals in the field, and a handy link to Citing Sources.

Ask-a-Librarian Perfect for Snow Days!

snowflakes-152422_960_720Snow days can be productive study days – as some students discovered this week.  GRCC librarians answered questions via our Ask-a-Librarian service.  If you can’t make it to the Library & Learning Commons, get your research-related questions answered by phoning a Reference Librarian at 616-234-3868, or, by using the handy Ask-a-Librarian Request Form found on the LLC website.  We answer questions when the library is open and classes are in session (and at special times like yesterday when we’re not).  If we receive your question after hours, it will be answered first-thing on our next business day.

Librarians continuously update and revise the guides to cater to the needs of the students. Whether it is citation help or finding information on the Diversity Lecture Series, a librarian has put together resources in one easy to search location.There is also a page to help find the right career for you.

If you need extra help, please Ask-A-Librarian.

Good luck and enjoy the rest of the semester!
