New Photocopiers

Originally uploaded by decatur library.
Good news! We now have our new copiers in the library. As previously noted, the coin box has been removed so a GPC ID Card or V-Card is required to make copies. We apologize for any inconvenience.

You can add money to either your GPC ID or V-Card, along with purchasing V-Cards, at the V-Machines in either the library or the Student Center. Funds may also be added to your GPC ID in the Student Accounts office.

For refunds, please complete the online Copier Refund Form. Refunds will no longer be given in the library.

Please contact GPC College Services at 678-891-3339 if you need any additional information.

Database News

We now have several new databases now available for your research needs:

America: History and Life
Bibliographic references (not full text articles!) to journal articles covering the history of the United States and Canada from prehistory to the present. Published since 1964, the database comprises over 490,000 bibliographic entries from over 2,000 periodicals dating back to 1954. Links to some full text articles from JSTOR and Project Muse are available.

Project Muse
Project Muse offers full text access to nearly 250 journal titles from 40 scholarly publishers covering fields such as literature and criticism, history, the visual and performing arts, cultural studies, education, political science and economics.

Historical Newspapers - The Atlanta Constitution (1868 - 1925)
Full-text and full-image articles from the Atlanta Constitution from 1868 to 1925. Great for local history research!

These new databases were purchased by the GPC libraries for your research use and are available through the library website and in GALILEO. Off campus access is available with the current semester GALILEO password.

In other database news, all ProQuest GALILEO databases - including Research Library and ABI Inform - are no longer available for GPC users. We apologize for any inconvenience.
