GSC Library Research Guide – New Edition

GSC students sometimes panic when confronted with a research paper or topic that requires using library resources. The GSC Library Research Guide is intended to help you with the research process. Newly designed for  2015/16, the guide is expanded to include new tools for searching, and an enhanced section on using Open Educational Resources for research. For help using the GSC Research Guide, or to provide feedback, please contact the College Librarian.


Open Educational Resources

Did you know that there are many digital collections of free quality resources available? One of the best is the American Memory Project, but that is not all. Explore these free collections of resources and add visual interest, historical significance, and unique perspectives to your research assignments. See our Open Educational Resources guide.
