Many users find needed full-text articles while reviewing database results, but sometimes the journal you want is not available in the resource you are using. Have you ever limited your results to [Full-Text] online and lost the “best article”? We recommend that you check [eJournal List] which tells you whether GRCC licenses that desired journal – and in which database that content can be found.
GRCC’s Subject Guides list the top journals in an academic field on a [Periodicals] tab – and often those are the journals that are recommended for use in initial research assignments. But, [eJournal List] goes a step further and provides a list of eJournals specific to a particular field of interest; you can limit to peer-reviewed journals, too.

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.
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.
