25 Titles Now Available in Gale Virtual Reference Library


In late September the SDLAC committee voted on the top 25 titles, culled from a list of selected choices that Gale gave us, to include in the Gale Virtual Reference Library database.

Only 10 titles had 4 or more votes each, so those were added to the GVRL right away.  Then the reps looked over the titles that each received 2 or 3 votes, and we voted on the remaining choices during our 11/6 meeting.  We tried to make sure there were some titles appropriate for academic, public/tribal, and K12 library patrons and to encompass multiple subject areas.

The following choices are now available in GVRL.  For a description of what each title encompasses, see the attachment.
