Databases with Mobile-Friendly Interfaces
[Access this list from a mobile-friendly webpage.]
NOTE: If you are off-campus, you will need to log in to our proxy server (using your GPC username and password) to access most of these resources. For students, the GPC username and password are the same ones you use for iCollege. For faculty/staff, it will be the same username and password you use for webmail.
Images in the areas of art, architecture, the humanities, and social sciences. The orange "Go" button in the top right of the screen will direct mobile users to the ARTstor mobile site. (Mobile users will need to register for an ARTstor account through the standard interface from an on-campus network and use that account to log into the mobile interface. iOS users will resolve directly to a mobile interface. Android users will be prompted to download an application to access ARTstor on their devices. See ARTstor Help for more details)
Mobile access to all available EBSCO databases. (Off campus users will be prompted for their GALILEO password and possibly their GPC username and password depending upon the database being accessed.)
GIL-Find @ GPC
The new look and feel for the libraries' original catalog, GIL Classic@GPC. (Users will have to login with their patron barcode, last name, and PIN to access "My Account" functions.)
GPC Libraries Research Guides
Research assistance, subject guides, and other useful resources compiled by your friendly GPC librarians.
JSTOR Mobile (Beta)
Full-text access to back issues of scholarly journals in the humanities, social sciences and sciences. (The mobile interface is a separate website from the standard JSTOR interface. Off-campus access may be unreliable.)
Lexis Nexis Academic Mobile
Provides a quick news, business, or legal search for users on the go. While not all of the content in the full LexisNexis Academic version is accessible through the mobile interface, basic searches can be executed quickly and easily. (The mobile interface is a separate website so tablet users may prefer the standard interface.)
MedlinePlus (at National Library of Medicine/National Institutes of Health)
MedlinePlus will direct you to information to help answer health questions. MedlinePlus brings together authoritative, consumer-focused information from The National Library of Medicine (NLM), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and other government agencies and health-related organizations. MedlinePlus includes extensive information about drugs and supplements, an illustrated medical encyclopedia, videos, interactive patient tutorials, and the latest health news. (Off campus users will be prompted for their GALILEO password.)
