Ten Titles Added to Gale Virtual Reference Library


The Statewide Database Licensing Advisory Committee members with voting privileges each emailed their top 25 titles for the Gale Virtual Reference Library, keeping those libraries they represent in mind, and I tallied the votes last week.  Ten titles received 4 or more votes each, so Gale added those to the GVRL database. The committee is meeting on Nov. 6th and will decide the remaining 15 titles then.

These are the e-books now available in the GVRL:

American Decades Primary Sources

Ancient Civilizations Reference Library

Complete Human Diseases and Conditions

Encyclopedia of Philosophy, 2nd ed.

Encyclopedia of Religion

Encyclopedia of Science, Technology and Ethics

Encyclopedia of World Cultures

Grzimek's Animal Life Encyclopedia

UXL Encyclopedia of Native American Tribes, 2nd ed.

Women in World History: A Biographical Encyclopedia

This database is one of the choices in the list that opens when you click on PowerSearch from the Find Information page on OSLIS.
