Online Resources Newsletter


 Buhl Library Online Resources Newsletter Vol. 7 May 4, 2020

We've come to the end of the semester and this will be our last weekly newsletter email for the semester. We have thoroughly enjoyed putting them together for you every week and although we haven't been able to see everyone in person we hope that this has helped our GCC community engage with library staff and our collections in this challenging virtual environment. We know it's hard to be away from a place that you love and we look forward to seeing everyone back in the library building and on campus soon. We have appreciated your support and kind words, all of your questions (262 of them in the past 2 months) and taking advantage of our online resources each week. 

If you're taking online classes over intersession or summer or prepping classes for the fall, we're here to support and assist you. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us. Finish the semester strong, Wolverines. Librarian Favorite

 A Special Message for You... 

Last week we shared a message from library staff wishing everyone good luck on their finals. This week we have a few special guests who want to share their well wishes. Our therapy dog volunteers visit us once a semester on study day and even though they can't visit in person this year they wanted to make sure that you know that they're thinking of you during this time. Take a look below!
