Document Delivery Interlibrary Loan services – in both print and digital formats – are available. Mel ordering will start again Sept. 8.
Print assignments, lecture notes, course syllabi, you name it – in the Library & Learning Commons (LLC). To do so, you must have value on your RaiderCard account, as the printers do not have coin-ops.
When printing from a personal device, follow these instructions.
When printing from a networked computer, click [Print] and choose either the [Find_Me_Gray on Papercut] or the [Find Me Color on Papercut] printer. Do you need single- or double-sided prints? Follow the computer screen prompts. Your document goes into Papercut’s print queue and stays there for the next hour.
With RaiderCard in hand, proceed to a library printer. If you chose the [Find Me Color on Papercut] option, use the color printer located in the center of the LLC’s first floor; otherwise any printer will do. Slide your RaiderCard to start the print process and up will pop the documents sent to the queue. Follow screen prompts – and be sure to [Log off] when you are through.
All library employee are able to help if you need it!
If you’re new to GRCC, be sure to get your RaiderCard loaded with value so it’s ready to use. In the Library, use it to check out library materials, course reserves, laptop computers, headphones, etc. – all free services, BTW. Use your RaiderCard to pay for printing / copying – not just in the Library but everywhere on campus. There are no coin-ops on any printers – you must use your RaiderCard.
Check out all the ways you can use your RaiderCard on-campus – or off-campus.
Add value to your RaiderCard using the machines founds in most GRCC buildings, or, online. (HINT: Tell your Mom, Dad, favorite aunt or uncle, etc. about how they can donate to your RaiderCard account as a Welcome to College gift!)

At Grand Rapids Art Museum (GRAM), you can dig into some Freudian psychology by viewing the art in Real/Surreal. Grand Rapids is the first stop of the exhibit’s national tour developed by the Whitney Museum of American Art. Art from Andrew Wyeth, Edward Hopper, Man Ray, Grand Wood and many others are currently on display through January 13th. Along with this exhibit, there is a show of Salvador Dali’s Twelve Tribes of Israel as a complement.
As a GRCC student or employee, you can visit the GRAM for free, along with other local museums, with your RaiderCard! This is an excellent opportunity to see amazing artwork and a beautiful LEED certified building. If you missed the chance to visit the GRAM during ArtPrize, this is the time to visit as the crowds are much smaller. The winner of this year’s competition, Elephants, will be on display through Thanksgiving so see it while you can!
Not able to visit the GRAM? Check out ARTstor in our databases. Some of the art is available for viewing as high quality images that allow the viewer to zoom quite close to see the minute details. Not all the pieces at the GRAM are in ARTstor.
