And here’s what it does:
· Delivers more than 2,500 full-text magazines, newspapers, books and transcripts as well as multimedia reference essentials. It also offers thousands of maps, pictures, educator-approved websites and top-quality multimedia (audio/video) files.
· MLA citing is built in for everything offered.
· Students can sort their results by relevance, date, files size, reading level, publication, and source, while educators can find content that’s directly linked to state and national teaching standards.
· The built in BookCart function allows staff to build persistent links to pre-selected content, create reading lists, standards-linked lessons and activities, and pre- and post- assessments.
