In addition, GRCC licenses several academic EBSCOhost databases. HINT!  For most linking needs, the easiest way to link ONE ARTICLE is from a OneSearch results screen.

When articles are published that match the strategy you create, they will be added to the list of articles you see today.  Do not select a particular article; be sure you are on the screen showing multiple results.
