During the week of May 5-12, 2021, the EBSCOHost eBooks collection will undergo a system upgrade. This starts during GRCC’s interim week when it likely impacts few students, but it continues until midweek of the first week of the Summer session. During this time:
Users will be able to read eBooks online and download eBook chapters, and read previously downloaded eBooks.
Users will not be able to download full eBooks to read offline.
While most titles the Library purchases relate directly to coursework, librarians also curate a small fiction collection for both academic work and leisure reading. Librarian Lori DeBie recently added several literary fiction titles that you won’t want to miss.
These eBook formatted titles reflect the work of a diverse group of award-winning authors, including Jim Shepard, James McBride, Valeria Luiselli, Jhumpa Lahiri, Hasan Namir, Junot Diaz, and Ta-Hanesi Coates. Their creds span the National Book Award, Pulitzer Award, the Edgar, Lamda Literary Award, New York Times Bestseller, Amazon Best Books, Oprah’s Book Club, and more.
Take a look at the Fiction carousel of titles on the eBooks Subject Guide. Off-campus users will logon with last name and 7-digit Raider number. Read them online, or, download them to your device.
EBSCO eBook Academic Collection was down for a few days – something that almost never happens. But, MeL Michigan eLibrary fixed the problem and all titles are available again. Plus – we have access to more than 3000 titles (with this one resource providing us over 190,300 titles) than we did last week!
