Come see Works by Helmi up until February 2nd!

Helmi Dagmar Juvonen (1903-1985), known simply as Helmi, was a Pacific Northwest Artist well known for her work recording Native American culture and art. She worked with many mediums during her career and she is associated with the Northwest School American art movement. Helmi was well known for her art at a time when women rarely made a career as an artist. Her work was especially recognized in the last decade of her life.

Helmi spent the last 25 years of her life in an Elma convalescence home where she met Grays Harbor College English instructor Brent Goeres. The works on display were gifted to Grays Harbor College by Brent Goeres’ Estate.

Come learn more about this artist by visiting the Art Gallery in the John Spellman Library during open hours!

How can I find full-text articles?

The best place to find thousands of full-text articles is in the library’s databases.  You can search multiple databases simultaneously by entering a title, author, subject, or keyword using the Articles drop-down on the library’s homepage:

 

Alternatively, you can search specific databases by mousing over the tab, clicking on All Sources or Databases listed by Subject, and selecting a database from the list. Many of the library’s databases allow you to limit your search results to full-text. Look for a box that you can check on the search page.

If you find an article that’s not available full-text look for a ‘Check for Full-Text’ link, to see if we have a print copy of the article in the GHC library or an electronic copy in another GHC Library database. Not all the databases have the same information, so your article might be in one of the others!

The link could look like one of these:

check_full_text_3check_full_text_2 check_for_full_text

 

If no copies are found, please ask the reference librarian to order the article for you through our Inter-Library Loan process.
