Getting to Know Research In Context
On July 1, 2017, Gale's Research In Context will launch for NOVELNY users and this webinar will provide a preview of this outstanding resource! Research In Context is designed to bridge the gap between the Kids InfoBits resource for elementary school students and the subject-specific Gale In Context family, for high school and undergraduate students. Students in grades 6 to 8 will benefit from an interface that delivers the highly visual design and navigation preferred by younger users combined with the authoritative content and user-focused tool set needed to support middle school assignments and coursework. In this 30 minutes webinar, we’ll explore how this resource can support students and provide best practices for finding what you need!

With more than 1,100 periodicals and 200 reports, Educator's Reference Complete is a great resource for any educator--from the school teacher and administrator to those studying in the field at the collegiate and graduate level.
