Library Web Site Changes Improve Student Research Tools

February 10, 2011 / by / 0 Comment

The Grand Canyon University Library has some incredible new content for every academic subject, including 30 new databases covering expanded full text content for the Fine Arts, Education, Nursing, Health Sciences, Business, Social Sciences, Computing and more!

The library added a wonderful tool called RefWorks, where you can export your citations from the databases to organize and manage ongoing research projects involving extensive literature searching.

For general reference, you can now consult the Credo Reference collection, which includes over 500 online reference sources such as encyclopedias, dictionaries, biographies, quotations, and much more.
