New Book Shelf… Kind of

GRCC’s Library does not have a New Book Shelf like you might expect to see at a public library.  Instead, librarian Lori DeBie provides us with regularly updated lists of new materials through RaiderSearch Catalog Featured Lists.  Updated at the end of each month, there is a featured list for PRINT books, E-books, and also for New Streaming Video.  Take a look at the February 2017 lists now.  When you want to see the newest titles added to GRCC’s collections, go to RaiderSearch Catalog and select [Featured Lists] on the blue toolbar.RaiderSearch Featured Lists
