Do you love science?

 

The GRCC Library provides students and faculty FREE online access to one of the longest surviving science journals, Nature.  Prior to its inception, in the mid-19th century, scientists, astrologists, zoologists, and the like were often members of a Royal Society.  Through these membership societies, there was continuous communication amongst scholars within the same domains, although published information was only available for members.  Nature was created in an attempt to combine all science related research and communication into a single, collaborative platform.

Today, Nature continues to provide readers access to current jobs, research, trends, and issues present in various scientific fields.  The overarching classifications covered within the publication are life sciences, earth sciences, physical sciences, clinical practice, and chemistry. Further, the journal often links science to social issues being experienced around the world, educating users on how science is intertwined within our society.

If your studies or personal interests have you seeking a quality, easily accessible resource pertaining to any of these domains you’ll definitely want to check Nature out!
