Columbia Granger's World of Poetry

Columbia Granger's World of Poetry

Publisher: Columbia University Press

For nearly a century, Granger's has been the resource that libraries and researchers trust "the best available general index to poetry" (Booklist). First introduced on CD-ROM in 1991 and revised in 1995, it has now been expanded and updated, ensuring that its coverage stays up to the minute and the software for accessing it remains state of the art.

At Columbia Granger's World of Poetry, users currently have access to almost 220,000 poems in full text along with 450,000 poem citations. With the re-designed site, searching is greatly enhanced and user friendly and there are new searches by era or school, nationality, publication date, language, cultural identity, and gender. And there is much more.

Columbia Granger's is an invaluable tool for any one who or wants to learn about poetry. With the new database some of the most important works of literature, The Canterbury Tales, Beowulf, The Divine Comedy, are presented in their entirety, in easy-to-navigate form, so that readers can understand the order in which they were composed and meant to be read. These works may be studied in part or sequence. In addition each work appears in modern spelling along with its original language, Middle English, Old English, and Italian, respectively. This is another unique benefit of Columbia Granger's World of Poetry. An exciting new feature is the split screen option that will allow advanced users the ability to view works side-by-side for comparison. For example, The Canterbury Tales can be viewed in Middle English next to the modern translation. This feature along with the extensive body of poetry will allow for an innovative method to explore poetry.

For general readers and librarians the new subject search (and browse) will be especially welcome with poems organized across 6,000 subjects. All the popular searches are here, love, death, mother, children, but of special interest is the organization by hierarchies such as History, U.S. Civil War, Battle of Antietam or Battle of Bull Run. And there is more to come such as audio to selected poems. Subscriptions provide unlimited user access.

Gale Research In Context

Gale Research In Context

Publisher: Cengage Learning

The well-known Gale in Context collection of resources has expanded to include a resource specially created for 11 to 14 year old pupils. This brings together authoritative content in a variety of formats onto one modern, pupil friendly interface.

Student Tested, Librarian Approved. Gale's 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, developed primarily for high school and undergraduate students.
11 to 14 year old students will benefit from an interface that delivers the highly visual design and navigation preferred by younger users combined with authoritative content and a user-focused tool set to support assignments and coursework.

The Research in Context is designed to support the developing information and digital literacy skills of the average secondary school student, drawing from:

User testing with 11 to 14 year old students
Librarian and teacher feedback
An extensive body of user experience research and usage data gathered over years of developing primary and secondary school resources
Analysis of school curriculum standards and popular lesson plans

The resource's name, content, and design are also ideal for younger students who are ready for more advanced research as well as school students who are still developing their key skills.

Cross-Disciplinary and Curriculum-Aligned Content:

Bringing together content from the former Discovering Collection, Junior Reference Collection, Student Resource Centre, InfoTrac Junior Edition, and InfoTrac Junior Graphic Edition, Research in Context is cross-disciplinary in nature: spanning literature, science, social studies, and U.S. and world history.
Categories cover the most-studied topics: Cultures, government, people, U.S. history, sports, world history, geography, literature, science, and social issue, including nearly 300 topic pages and overviews on the subjects and social issues most studied by and relevant to middle school users as well as science experiments and contextual information for key works and documents
Engaging reference, periodical, and multimedia content: Books, images, biographies, audio, video, magazines, newspapers, creative works, primary sources, and more
Authoritative information sources: Proprietary Gale, UXL, and Lucent titles and content from leading sources like National Geographic, Scholastic, NPR, NASA, AP Video News, and others
Alignment to standards: Contains national curriculum standards for 11 to 14 year pupils in language arts, social studies, and science
New content written explicitly for middle schools: Topic overviews on the subjects and social issues most studied by and relevant to middle school users as well as science experiments and contextual information for key works and documents

Features Optimized to Support the Student Workflow:

Today's researchers demand resources that are simple to navigate and quick to deliver the answers they need: when, where, and how they want them. Research In Context supports the student workflow with features like:
A responsive design, optimized for any device and screen size
Highlights and Notes, which allow users to select and highlight important text, add notes, and view, print, or export that information for easy project management
Content translation into 12 languages (including English, Spanish, Arabic, and Mandarin Chinese) accommodating to diverse populations and ESL/ELL students
ReadSpeaker text-to-speech technology for 12 languages (including English, Spanish, Arabic, and Mandarin Chinese)

National Geographic Online

National Geographic Online

Publisher: Cengage Learning

National Geographic magazine is the official journal of the National Geographic Society, one of the world's largest non-profit educational and scientific organisations. Recognised for some of the highest-quality photojournalism and cartography in the world, this award-winning, iconic magazine is famous for providing unparalleled, in-depth coverage of cultures, nature, science, technology and the environment. This fascinating online resource features the complete archive of the magazine from 1888 to date including every page and every photograph, all fully searchable through an intuitive interface.

Around 190,000 pages
1,224 issues
34 languages supported.

When National Geographic magazine started publication in 1888 as a scholarly, scientific journal, it reflected the interests of its small, mostly professional, readership. Between its conservative, brown covers, there were no photographs - only studious articles that discussed such topics as "Geographic Methods in Geologic Investigation" and "The Great Storm of March 11-14, 1888."

More than a century later, the now yellow bordered National Geographic brings the world of geography in its broadest sense - to some 60 million readers around the globe each month. With comprehensive, timely articles and legendary photographs and maps, the magazine documents life on our planet and beyond, and interprets the world's sweeping changes through the lens of personal experience.

Through the decades, National Geographic has brought its readers gripping first-person accounts of epic exploration and discovery, from Machu Picchu to Jane Goodall's ground breaking research with chimpanzees to Robert Ballard's discovery of the Titanic.

Every article, every photograph and every map of this vast knowledge base is faithfully reproduced in the new National Geographic Online 1888 to date (please note there is a 45 day embargo). An essential resource for researchers of all ages as well as a fascinating collection for general readers.
