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 AccessSciencedatabase 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.

Grand Rapids Community College, in partnership with Microsoft, is pleased to announce that GRCC students, faculty, and staff are eligible to receive a personal license for Microsoft Office 365.

Each laptop comes with a mouse, power adapter, and computer bag. A second location (Automated Kiosk) with 12 laptops is located in the Student Center (3rd floor by Advising), also with 4-hour checkouts. Laptops must be used on campus and late fees apply.
