New Britannica and EBSCO Resources Now Available!

Friday, September 21, 2018

Drum roll, please: new resources are now available in BadgerLink! We appreciate your patience as we rolled out these new resources after completing the BadgerLink Request for Bid procurement process over the summer. Without further ado:

Britannica Digital Learning has added Britannica Library, a comprehensive reference and learning resource for children and adults. Similar to Britannica School but suitable for public library patrons, this edition offers 3 distinct interfaces and reading levels in one site. Britannica School will continue to be available through BadgerLink.

EBSCO will now provide 7 new, upgraded resources.

  • AutoMate: Authoritative and up-to-date service and repair information for thousands of domestic and international vehicles. This resource will be replacing Auto Repair Reference Center.
  • Children’s Core Collection: Reliable guides to help librarians with collection development and maintenance, curriculum support, readers’ advisory and general reference for preschool-6th grade. This resource will be replacing Book Collection Nonfiction: Elementary School Edition.
  • Middle & Junior High Core Collection: Reliable guides to help librarians with collection development and maintenance, curriculum support, readers’ advisory and general reference for grades 5-9. This resource will be replacing Book Collection Nonfiction: Middle School Edition.
  • Senior High Core Collection: Reliable guides to help librarians with collection development and maintenance, curriculum support, readers’ advisory and general reference for grades 9-12. This resource will be replacing Book Collection Nonfiction: High School Edition.
  • Library, Information Science & Technology Abstracts with Full Text: Database providing cover-to-cover indexing, abstracting and full-text for key library and information science periodicals. This resource will be replacing Library, Information Science & Technology Abstracts.
  • MasterFILE Complete: Popular full-text magazines, reference books and other sources from the world’s leading publishers. This resource will be replacing MasterFILE Premier.
  • Teacher Reference Center: Research database for teachers providing indexing and abstracts for more than 220 peer-reviewed journals.

We will be removing access to Auto Repair Reference Center, Book Collection Nonfiction: Elementary, Middle & High School Editions; Library, Information Science & Technology Abstracts; and MasterFILE Premier after October 5, 2018.

Newspapers.com Library Edition World Collection and U.S. Newsstream should be ready in the coming weeks. We apologize for the delay.
