EBSCO eBooks working again – And it’s even bigger!

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!

Search the EBSCO eBook Academic Collection database separately for fullest functionality, or, see results in your OneSearch results.   For more on eBooks, see the eBooks Subject Guide. lady holding ebook

New Database: Business Book Summaries

Business Book Summaries logoAnother of our new databases from MeL Michigan eLibrary is Business Book Summaries (BBS).  Concise summaries of the best business books will help busy business faculty and students keep up with the latest information in the business world.

Here’s an example of a summary for the book The Culture Builders: Leadership Strategies for Employee Performance, by Jane Sparrow. (Login with your last name and 7-digit Raider number and select the PDF.)

If the title is intriguing, check RaiderSearch Catalog for a GRCC call number, or, click through to MeL Catalog to borrow it if we don’t own it.

eBrary Updates

Our library is working on creating a up-to-date listing of our eBrary ebook collection, so we are reloading all of our eBrary links in the library’s online catalog, RaiderSearch. What is means for our users is that when searching in RaiderSearch for the next week or so, you may notice that some eBrary ebook links intermittently disappear and reappear. If you need to access eBrary this week, you may find it easier to go directly to GRCC’s eBrary webiste: http://0-site.ebrary.com.lib.grcc.edu/lib/grcc/home.action After this project is finished, all eBrary links will be back in RaiderSearch and this should eliminate any old links that no longer work. Please feel free to call (234-3868) or email (library@grcc.edu) the library if you have any questions about this process. Thank you for your patience and we look forward to providing a wide variety of eBooks for our students in the Fall semester!
