New Research Databases

Holman Library recently adjusted its collection of research databases. Click here for a listing and description of the new databases.

As always, if you are trying to access the databases from outside of the library, you will need to provide your GRCC student or employee identification number.

Of course, in order to add new databases, we chose not to renew some. We no longer have access to either the Psychology Journals or the Science Journals collections from ProQuest. We switched our ERIC and CINAHL access from ProQuest to EBSCO.

Click here for a list of all our databases. You can view them either alphabetically or grouped by subject. We will soon be redesigning these pages, so let us know if you have any ideas!

We're One Year Old!

On February 3, 2006, the "Holman Library News" blog debuted. So, tomorrow is our first birthday! Over the past year, readers of the blog have learned about new library databases, new library resources, useful web pages, library events (including our bake sales), seen photos of the December wind storm damage, etc. Please keep reading in 2007, and spread the word to others that this is the place to find out what is happening in Holman Library!
