Have an APA citing question? Need a list of professional journals in your field? Can’t find a college-level article that explains the PRO-CONS of a topic? Need an eBook on <name your topic>? Wondering if an internet website is legit? Need to narrow a research topic to articles published in peer-reviewed journals?
We will help answer all of those questions – and yours, too. Contact a GRCC librarian via:
Did you know you can make an appointment to speak with a specific GRCC Reference Librarian? Librarians answer questions by phone, email, chat and text. We even have some in-library hours available. If what you need is help from the librarian who is assigned to serve your academic department, you can contact your liaison librarian and make an appointment!
Ask-a-Librarian email reference requests are a great way to request assistance from GRCC Reference Librarians. You can also use OneSearch Chat, text us, call a Reference Librarian (616-234-3868), or, contact your department’s Liaison Librarian directly.
Ask-a-Librarian questions are answered during our Virtual Reference Service hours , and questions received outside those hours are answered first-thing on the next business day.
Ask-a-Librarian gives you the space to be complete when asking your question – enabling librarians to answer completely! Tell us which class your question relates to, about any assignment requirements, where you’ve already searched and what terms you used – and anything else that will inform librarians. Students and faculty tell us they like the ease of using Ask-a-Librarian, and that the answers are complete, helpful, and fast!
It’s true, students and faculty – HERE meaning that – while the Library building is closed – we ARE available by phone, email, Ask-a-Librarian, and OneSearch Chat. GRCC Librarians are available during all the hours we normally provided in-person reference service:
Monday – Thursday: 7:30 AM – 8:00 PM
Friday: 7:30 AM – 5:00 PM
Saturday: 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM
… and our service-oriented librarians often answer your questions outside those hours because we want you to be successful.
You’re not alone – and you’re certainly not without quality resources to use for assignments. We hope to hear from you!
