On Saturday, June 26 from 8AM-4PM EDT, ProQuest Ebook Central will move from its current server to Amazon Web Services, and will be offline. During that time, users will not have access to holdings in ProQuest Ebook Central. eBooks from other vendors are not affected.
For GRCC users, this means that not only will the content in theProQuest Ebook Central database be unavailable, links to that company’s eBooks appearing in Library Catalog and GRCC Library OneSearch results will not be active. We expect that ProQuest eBook resources will be available again Saturday evening.
ProQuest Ebook Central is a growing e-book collection spanning all academic subject areas including education, fine arts, history, language and literature, law, music, psychology, science, social sciences and technology. Most titles are available with unlimited simultaneous user licenses. All many be read online and most may be downloaded for 21-day loan periods. Logon with your last name and 7-digit Raider number. For more on eBooks, see the eBooks Subject Guide.
Browsing the new books area at bookstores and libraries is one of my favorite things – but eBooks are sometimes harder to discover. To make that easier, each month, GRCC’s cataloger posts new print and eBooks received.
