A One-Step Link to Many Resource Databases
What is this Service?
The Lee Library website now offers a one-step link with access to a wide variety of resource databases (a total of 32 databases!). This service is made available by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC) and the Massachusetts Library System (MLS) to all of their member libraries, including the Lee Library Association.
This one-step link directs the user to a Galesites web page which consolidates access to 32 databases provided by Gale, the leading provider of online databases for schools and libraries. The databases give access to a vast array of resources in many subject areas (e.g. Academic, Arts & Humanities, Business, K-12 Resources, Home & Travel, Health & Nursing, Britannica Online, the Boston Globe, the NY Times, etc.).
The Databases are Grouped into Subject Areas
The Galesites web page which is accessible through the one-step link provides Selection Menus (vertical menus on the left and right sides of the page) by which you can select either a single subject area, or all of them. The following are some examples of the available subject areas:
Britannica Online Databases (12 databases, 4 of which are):
- Britannica Online Public Library Edition
- Britannica Online Public Library Edition: Kids
- Spanish Edition: Moderna (grades 9-12)
- Spanish Edition: Escolar (K-8)
We hope that you will explore soon the new resource databases at the Galesites web page by following our new one-step link. Have fun!
