Find ProQuest Full-text through Google

ProQuest, one of our major research vendors, just launched a new discovery initiative for those who start their searches on the public internet. You will soon see millions more links to articles available in full-text in our licensed ProQuest databases.Google Scholar to ProQuest

How will this benefit you?  Let’s say you’re searching Google Scholar for articles on your topic. You spot a great sounding title from the site search.proquest.com – and  you click on the title.

You will be prompted to logon to your institution;  type Grand Rapids Community College and click on it. Login and you’re in!  You now have access to all the ProQuest content that GRCC licenses.  While GRCC does not license everything that ProQuest sells, if you identify something we don’t license, request it through RaiderLoan.

Overdues? No Worries! (UPDATED)

If you checked out GRCC Library materials due anytime this year, the due date has been extended (again) and materials are now due Tuesday August 18, 2020.  Any GRCC overdue fines have been waived.

If you checked out interlibrary-loaned books (from other MeL or RaiderLoan libraries),  the due dates are not GRCC’s to extend. When classes resume in person,  please return those items to us as soon as possible and any interlibrary loan overdue fines will be waived.

But I needed that PRINT book!

Libraries are closed across the country, so access to print titles, most Course Reserves, and Interlibrary Loan is not possible.  GRCC Librarians offer these alternatives:

  1. Ask-A-Librarian to see if there are alternate resources that will fill your need and accomplish the same goal.VitalSource graphic
  2. Need a textbook? Check out VitalSource on our Virtual Services Subject Guide to see if your textbook is included.
  3. If the book you need has an older copyright date, try out the FREE Internet Archive’s National Emergency Library project.   It’s already helped GRCC students multiple times!Internet Archive logo

Librarians are working to help you be successful.  Stay in touch!
