Citation Needed?

Citation Needed signIt’s that time of the year – when research assignments are soon due and students are typing furiously. Don’t forget to cite your sources! Librarians can help in multiple ways:

  1. The Citing Sources Subject Guide provides tips to APA, Chicago, and,  MLA styles, as well as links to the well-respected Purdue OWL resources.
  2. Most of our Research Databases have built-in citation generators. Look for a CITE icon.  You may need to clean the citation up a bit, but it will still be faster than starting from scratch.
  3. Ask-a-Librarian librarians will be happy to take a look at your citation list. You can copy and paste it into the message and be sure to tell us what style you are supposed to be following.

But I needed that PRINT book!

Libraries are closed across the country, so access to print titles, most Course Reserves, and Interlibrary Loan is not possible.  GRCC Librarians offer these alternatives:

  1. Ask-A-Librarian to see if there are alternate resources that will fill your need and accomplish the same goal.VitalSource graphic
  2. Need a textbook? Check out VitalSource on our Virtual Services Subject Guide to see if your textbook is included.
  3. If the book you need has an older copyright date, try out the FREE Internet Archive’s National Emergency Library project.   It’s already helped GRCC students multiple times!Internet Archive logo

Librarians are working to help you be successful.  Stay in touch!
