New Product Announcement-->Gale Virtual Reference Library

Gale Virtual Reference Library


A new addition to our e-reference collection, this one is a selection of about 100 titles from the Gale catalogue. Basic reference materials, searchable individually or as a group.

Individual catalogue records...these will be a problem as the records from GALE will need some work. When asked priority for GVRL, I put them below titles like Past Masters or netLibrary because people usually don't use the catalogue to find reference works, while for the other packages the catalogue is a critical access point.
