Some Tennessee Electronic Library changes August 13, 2008Posted by mplibrary in @ your library.
The TEL (Tennessee Electronic Library) has added some important new databases recently:
Points of View Reference Center contains thousands of full text sources that provide information on multiple sides of a current issue. Need to know both sides of an issue for a speech or debate? This is a good place to look.
Tennessee Newspapers provides full text of Knoxville, Chattanooga, Memphis, and Nashville newspapers.
Learning Express Library offers practice tests for various academic and professional licensing exams.
Then, of course, TEL still has all those wonderful and valuable databases that we cannot live without such as General Onefile (full text to thousands of magazines and journals), Literature Resource Center, Biography Resource Center, and Health Reference Center Academic. Every elementary, high school, and college student and all citizens should be aware of TEL and make use of it.
The Tennessee Electronic Library is provided free to all Tennesseeans by the State Library and Archives with funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services and Tenn-Share member libraries such as ours. Visit the Tennessee State Library and Archives web site for even more valuable resources, such as digitized Tennessee landmark documents and 19th Century newspapers.
