Damaged? Check This Out

"My child really enjoyed this book......

....can you tell me the title of a similar one?"  This is a common question asked of us here in the children's department.  If nothing pops into our heads right away, we often check in our database, NoveList K-8 Plus.  This database can be accessed from your home computer or here at the library.  Sounds great!, you say -- but how does it work?  Well, here is a brief introduction to this wonderful resource.  First go to our webpage.  Next, click on the "research" tab at the top.  When the drop-down menu appears, click on "databases".  On the next page there are more tabs!  Pick "literature" and it will bring you to the list of databases we have for that.  There you will see NoveList K-8 Plus.

Better Than Google

Gale Virtual Reference Library is listed on the first page of our database offerings.  The description says that it is "a general interest database that integrates a variety of sources in one easy-to-use interface."  This rather bland explanation does not indicate the wonderful sources of information it contains.In fact, Gale Virtual Reference Library (GVRL), was voted “Best Overall Database” by the readers of Library Journal magazine. GVRL’s user-friendly features include an interface that is available in more than 30 languages, ReadSpeaker technology (text-to-speech functionality) for 19 languages, article translation capability, a multi-page viewer for a book-like experience, and the ability to download articles as PDFs to ereaders or MP3 players.
