Michigan News Sources covers the Grand Rapids Press starting in mid-July 2000. See the [Michigan NewsSources] tab on this Subject Guide for linking articles since July 2000.
The Grand Rapids Press is currently covered (9/2016) under the Copyright Clearance Center's Academic Licence. This permission extends to course packs.
In addition, GRCC faculty have blanket permission to scan Press articles older than those found online in the Michigan News Sources database into Blackboard (or other password-protected learning environment) as long as the articles are credited as coming from the Press. Quality scanned copies of articles from older issues of the Grand Rapids Press are available in GRCC’s Library. Contact your library liaison for assistance. A copy of the permission email is shown here and should be copied into your Blackboard as proof of copyright permission. This permission does not extend to print course packs.
Whichever permission source you use (CCC or editor email), affix a copy of the permission to the scanned document you are uploading into Blackboard.
