The Library & Learning Commons has been extra busy – and we love it! In the last two weeks, librarians taught multiple classes simultaneously in the Library, in computer classrooms across campus, and at off-campus locations including: the Thompson Mtec; GVSU Meijer Campus; Midtown; Calvary Laketown; Rockford High School; and, Cedar Springs High School.
Faculty can schedule Information Literacy Instruction or reserve “Research Only” space in the Library using online forms found under the Faculty Resources link on the library webpage.
The Library is a great place for faculty and students to meet and collaborate.
The Reference Librarian on desk duty (here it’s Sophia Brewer) assists researchers with any and all topics students approach us with. We also serve a lot of Ferris State University students taking classes in the ATC.
The GRCC Library was recently featured in the college newspaper, the Collegiate. Check out the article by clicking here. Library Director, Brian Beecher, shares how the space and services provided by the Library and its staff are resources for students – particularly during exam time!
The long-awaited second edition of Howard Friedman’s Encyclopedia of Mental Health, covering all aspects of mental health, is now available. With updated encyclopedia articles written by experts, our e-book version is easier to use than the print version; researchers will find more focused articles faster. GRCC’s Library licensed it for use by an unlimited number of multiple users at a time. Encyclopedia of Mental Health was chosen as a Choice Outstanding Academic Title for 2016.
This new reference book has been added to several Subject Guides and can be accessed through RaiderSearch Catalog as well. Browse this title now!
Licensed off-campus users may be asked for their last name and Raider number.
The Winter Semester has officially begun, and the GRCC Library would like to remind all students (returning, and newbies), as well as faculty and staff, of the many resources and services we can offer you. From research help to library instruction to quiet study, we have got you covered this semester!
Check out our Library Services subject guide to learn more: http://subjectguides.grcc.edu/guide
Stop by during our open hours to check out our space, resources, or inquire further about ways we can help – we are located at 140 Ransom Ave. NE, in between the Music and ATC buildings, on the main campus.
Our staff is looking forward to providing support for all of your academic needs this semester!
