What an incredible summer it has been. Your KYVL staff has been going full throttle for the past couple of months. In case you haven’t heard the great news, we have some new resources. We have also been busy closing out Fiscal Year 13-14 and preparing for Fiscal Year 14-15. (If you haven’t received your 2014-15 Invoice let us know.)
The feedback we are getting about the new resources that rolled out on July 1st has been amazing! Our 300 plus members are excited about the addition of three rich new resources. Academic Search Complete caused a lot of buzz in the halls of the academic and special libraries. This EBSCO database replaces Academic Search Premier.
It is a scholarly, full text database designed for academic institutions. Designed for academic institutions, this database provides complete coverage of multidisciplinary academic journals. The level and range of content included in this resource fully supports scholarly research in the key areas of academic study by providing peer-reviewed journals, full-text periodicals, reports, books, and much more.
For our public and school library members the addition of LearningExpress Library and Britannica Digital Learning has been met with enthusiasm. The LearningExpress Library offers the opportunity to build skills related to jobs, computers, and college prep. It offers access to test preparation for patrons seeking their high school equivalency degree . It also offers Spanish language resources.
Britannica Digital Library also offers two Spanish language resources: Britannica Enciclopedia Moderna and Britannica Escolar Online. That is just two of the multiple resources made available to KYVL members through this new offering. For more details on all of the databases available to you as KYVL member visit our “Find a Database” page.
In our next post we will talk a bit more about some of the training we have been doing over the past few weeks and tell you more about what is coming up this fall. In the meantime, visit our Training page and sign up for Britannica Digital Learning webinars. The first one is scheduled for Tuesday August 5th.
