Librarians encourage and appreciate GRCC student, faculty, and staff recommendations for books and journals to be added to the library collection. The library collection development policy was approved by the AGC. Send a message to your Liaison Librarian, call the Reference Desk (616-234-3868), or send an email with your recommendation. If you provide your contact information, we'll notify you when the book arrives.
Librarians will provide information literacy instruction in your Blackboard course with at least two-weeks notice. To request a librarian to work in your Blackboard, fill out an Information Literacy Request Form. Liaison Librarians can also assist with adding links to copyrighted materials to their Blackboard courses.
One of the most important learning resources is a librarian designated to be a specialist for you and your department. Your department's librarian liaison handles library materials orders, copyright questions, OER materials selection, Subject Guide curation, library accreditation reports, faculty training, and more. If you do not see your department listed, contact Nan Schichtel (616-234-3082).
Contact Library Circulation Specialist Kevin Lyons (616-234-3189) or Circulation Associate Toni Harrington (616-234-3555) to place library resources or personal materials onto course reserve for your students, or, Liaison Librarians can assist faculty who are new to adding links to copyrighted material to their Blackboard courses.
