2019 GHC Student Art Exhibition

A fresh exhibition of artwork by nearly 100 GHC students is now hanging in the Spellman Library Gallery. The exhibition demonstrates the time and effort its contributors have spent this year in their visual arts coursework. There’s a powerful creative brew in this region, but you don’t have to take my word for it, stop by the gallery and see for yourselves. And don’t hesitate to stop by the library for the reception this Thursday, May 23 from 4 – 5pm and help us celebrate!

Where can I find peer-reviewed articles?

The best place to look for peer-reviewed articles is in the library’s databases.  From the library’s homepage, you can search multiple databases simultaneously by selecting Articles from the drop down menu and entering a keyword into the search box.

You can easily limit your search results to peer-reviewed articles by choosing Peer-reviewed journals under the Availability section . Look for this option in the upper left hand side of your search results screen. You’ll need to click the green box at the bottom of the screen that says “Apply Filters”.

For more options and specific library databases, mouse over the Search_&_Find tab and click on All Sources. Many of the library’s databases including Academic Search Complete and ProQuest Research Library have their own peer-reviewed check-boxes. Science Direct does not have a check-box, because EVERYTHING you find in Science Direct is peer-reviewed!

It’s All I Have To Bring Today

by Emily Dickinson

It’s all I have to bring today—
This, and my heart beside—
This, and my heart, and all the fields—
And all the meadows wide—
Be sure you count—should I forget
Some one the sum could tell—
This, and my heart, and all the Bees
Which in the Clover dwell.

National Library Week

National Library Week, April 7-13, 2019, is an annual celebration highlighting the valuable role libraries, librarians, and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening our communities.

This year’s theme, Libraries = Strong Communities, illustrates how today’s libraries are at the heart of our cities, towns, schools and campuses, providing critical resources, programs and expertise. They also provide a public space where all community members, regardless of age, culture or income level, can come together to connect and learn.

Join the celebration! National Library Week is an exciting opportunity for library supporters and libraries of all types to raise awareness of their value and impact in their communities.  For more information please access the American Library Association’s web page devoted to National Library Week.
