We are here for you boxIt’s true, students and faculty – HERE meaning that – while the Library building is closed – we ARE available by phone, email, Ask-a-Librarian, and OneSearch Chat. GRCC Librarians are available during all the hours we normally provided in-person reference service:

  • Monday – Thursday: 7:30 AM – 8:00 PM
  • Friday: 7:30 AM – 5:00 PM
  • Saturday: 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM

… and our service-oriented librarians often answer your questions outside those hours because we want you to be successful.

You’re not alone – and you’re certainly not without quality resources to use for assignments.  We hope to hear from you!

Help from a Librarian – Let Me Count the Ways!

Librarian Because Book Wizard isn't an official job titleDid you know that the ways you can connect with GRCC librarians have recently expanded? You can:

1.    Visit with a librarian at the Reference Desk. (7:30 am – 8:00 pm M-R; 7:30 am – 5:00 pm F; 10:00 am – 2:00 pm Sat.)

2.    Contact your Liaison Librarian. Every academic department is assigned a departmental liaison librarian.  While any reference librarian is happy to assist you, you may have a question which can best be answered by a liaison librarian.

3.    Speak with a librarian at 616-234-3868.

4.    Send an Ask-a-Librarian email.

AND …. ta-da…..
