GRCC’s eJournal Portal provides access to always up-to-date lists of periodicals (journals, magazines, newspapers, newsletters, etc.) licensed for your use. From the Library’s homepage, select [eJournal Portal] and limit your results to Journals only. Select the broad Subject you’re looking for – and drill down to select the more specific subcategory. For example, when seeking a list of Nursing journals, choose [Health & Biological Sciences] and select the Nursing subcategory to discover 1059 links to eJournals!
Click through to the periodical of interest. If you’re on wi-fi or off-campus, you may be prompted for your last name and 7-digit Raider number.
[eJournal Portal] is great for browsing, but if you need to do a real literature search, be sure to use a database suggested on the appropriate [Subject Guide].
Check out our spiffy new A-Z Databases List! This updated tool provides accurate links to all the databases that GRCC licenses or receives through the MeL Michigan eLibrary program. As URLs change (all too often – sigh!), the updated link can be changed in the new Databases List, and will be updated across all of the Subject Guides at the same time.
Remember that if you’re off-campus or using wireless, you may be asked to log on with your last name and 7-digit Raider number.
The State of Michigan provides all Michigan libraries a slate of free-to-Michigan-citizens databases through the MeL Michigan eLibrary program. For more than 15 years, the list has remained relatively unchanged, populated mostly by Cengage Gale databases – until now. Starting October 1, 2018 and lasting for the next 5 years, MeL will license many new databases for us – plus a few old favorites. You’ll soon see those databases on the Databases link, as well as on selected Subject Guides.
If you’re not using MeL databases, you’re missing out. Give them a try today!
If your textbook isn’t available at the Bookstore, or, you’re waiting for your copy to arrive from an online vendor, don’t fall behind in your assigned reading! Check to see if the Library has a copy of the textbook that you can use in the LLC until yours is available. Check here for a Course Listing – OR – check here for a listing by professor’s name. Most academic departments put one copy of their textbooks onto Course Reserve. If yours isn’t there, ask your professor to place one on Reserve.
Textbooks are not the only titles on Reserve. Often faculty put personal copies of books, or ask that library copies of books and DVDs go to Reserve. Questions? Contact Library Circulation at 616-234-3872, or, take a look at the Course Reserve Subject Guide.
