World Book Changes Coming July 1

world book advanced newWorld Book is getting a brand-new look! View Inside the New World Book Online Article Page. This 30-minute in-depth look will give you a look inside to see what’s new, what’s changed, and why the improvement will be beneficial to you and your students and patrons.

Currently World Book Kids already has the new look, so you can check it out live there.

In addition, World Book is a State Database and we now have two new World Book databases: World Book Student and World Book Advanced.

Hot Topic – How to Use the Library Databases: World Book Online also has a short video of the new look as well as links to the World Book Video &Tutorial pages which describes the new features.


Grolier Online is Back!

The State Library added Grolier Online to the group of state databases.  Currently, Gene has only linked under Databases A-Z (letters F-H).  Jon is working with him to get it on the Search by Topic page and Homework Help website.

There are two databases under Grolier Online – New Book of Knowledge and Multimedia Encyclopedia.

The database has a new look to it so be sure to check it out.  Under the Librarians/Educators tab there is a video overview which I recommend you view.
