Discovery vs. Henry - Getting to know the library’s search tools
There are two great tools available to help you find the resources you need in the library collection. Which should you use when?
Discovery allows you to search across most of the library’s resources, both what’s on the shelves and what’s in our online databases. It’s like Google for the library.
Best for when you are
Access Discovery through the search box in the middle of the library home page.
Henry is our traditional library catalog, focusing on the library’s physical collection of books, DVDs, journal titles, etc. It also includes many eBooks that are part of our permanent online collection.
Best for when you are
Access Henry from the “Books (Library Catalog)” link under “Find” on the library home page.
If you have any questions or need help using HENRY, Discovery or any other library resource you can find the ways to get help from a librarian here.
Autism Awareness Fundraiser
Back in March Buhl Library began selling Daffin's candy bars for our annual Autism Awareness event to buy school supplies for a local support classroom. This year's classroom is Miss Amy Cline's K - 5th grade autistic support classroom at Lakeview Area School District. We were able to raise $360 by selling 720 candy bars to purchase items on her wishlist. You can see the supplies below. Thank you for your support GCC and your sweet tooth to support a great cause!
Happy Stay at Homecoming Weekend
In celebration of Stay at Homecoming weekend, the staff of Buhl Library thought it would be fun to recreate one of our favorite photos from years past.
The image on the top pictured above is from the mid to late 1950s after Buhl Library opened in the fall of 1954. The first two pictured staff members are Mary Reynold, and Isabel Forbes. We're unsure of the identity of the third librarian. They are pictured with two students. Isabel graduated from Grove City College in 1923 and was the head librarian from 1925 - 1960. Mary Reynold is a graduate from 1937.
Flash forward to Fall 2020 more than 60 years later and our front desk area looks the same with the addition of some new technology behind the desk. Pictured on the two ends are our student workers and three librarians behind the desk. From left to right - Cole Greer, Joyce Kebert, Megan Babal, Barbra Munnell and Emma Nitzsche.
PLEASE NOTE: Our New Book Display has been temporarily removed and the books have been moved into our general collection. You can still browse the newest books and featured collections from the library online on the landing page for our online catalog, HENRY.

Featured Collection : Celebrating Women in Law
With the recent death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg we are featuring a collection of books about women in law this month. Below you will find books about Justice Ginsburg's life as well as her own writings. Ruth Bader Ginsburg leaves behind a legacy as a champion of fighting for equal rights for everyone under the law especially for women. After graduating at the top of her class from Columbia Law School she was unable to find a job and faced first hand the gender discrimination that she would later argue against in the Supreme Court. Out of the 6 cases she argued, she won 5. She focused on gender stereotypes and their harm to both men and women often taking up cases fighting for equal rights for men as well. Her work has had a direct impact on common activities such as opening a checking account, applying for a credit card or signing a mortgage that we may not think twice about today. However, less than 50 years ago women were required to have a male co-signer on these accounts. I hope that you'll take a few moments to stop in, pick up one of these titles and learn about the important role women have played and will continue to play in the field of law.
