AccessScience Trial Available

Some departments are seeking long-term (post-COVID) access to additional college-appropriate e-resources, so GRCC’s Library initiated a time-sensitive TRIAL to the AccessScience database from McGraw-Hill. This trial runs through May 31, 2020.  Use this direct password-authenticated link, prompting users for last name and 7-digit Raider number, or look for the trial on the Research Databases A-Z page.  Please share these links with your students.
Let your librarian liaison know if this database has long-term use for you and your students.  A vendor Subject Guide describes database features.  If you are seeking other e-resources, please contact your liaison librarian.

Do you love science?


The GRCC Library provides students and faculty FREE online access to one of the longest surviving science journals, Nature.  Prior to its inception, in the mid-19th century, scientists, astrologists, zoologists, and the like were often members of a Royal Society.  Through these membership societies, there was continuous communication amongst scholars within the same domains, although published information was only available for members.  Nature was created in an attempt to combine all science related research and communication into a single, collaborative platform.

Today, Nature continues to provide readers access to current jobs, research, trends, and issues present in various scientific fields.  The overarching classifications covered within the publication are life sciences, earth sciences, physical sciences, clinical practice, and chemistry. Further, the journal often links science to social issues being experienced around the world, educating users on how science is intertwined within our society.

If your studies or personal interests have you seeking a quality, easily accessible resource pertaining to any of these domains you’ll definitely want to check Nature out!

Science available online

Science cover imageWhenever there is breaking science news, there is a good chance that it was first covered in the journal Science.  “Founded by Thomas A. Edison in 1880 and published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), Science is the world’s largest circulation general science journal renowned for its highly-cited, peer-reviewed research papers, and its special strength in life science disciplines.”

Access the most recent issues of Science (2000-present) through our licensed link to the AAAS; older issues (back to 1880) are available through our JSTOR Life Sciences account.
