Are You RaiderCard Ready?

RaiderCard imageIf you’re new to GRCC, be sure to get your RaiderCard loaded with value so it’s ready to use.  In the Library, use it to check out library materials, course reserves, laptop computers, headphones, etc. – all free services, BTW.  Use your RaiderCard to pay for printing / copying – not just in the Library but everywhere on campus. There are no coin-ops on any printers – you must use your RaiderCard.

Check out all the ways you can use your RaiderCard on-campus – or off-campus.

Add value to your RaiderCard using the machines founds in most GRCC buildings, or, online. (HINT: Tell your Mom, Dad, favorite aunt or uncle, etc. about how they can donate to your RaiderCard account as a Welcome to College gift!)

Do you Use Course Reserve?

Course Reserve sampleThis week, classes start for the second 7-week term of the Summer.  It’s good practice to check Course Reserve at the Library to see if there are any additional learning resources available to you.  Faculty place copies of textbooks, videos, and additional course materials that cannot be legally loaded into Blackboard into Course Reserve. A search will tell you what’s available – by either the professor’s name or the course number.
