Best Databases of 2011
Librarians love to select "best" books, videos, databases, websites, etc. It's part of what we do: select and acquire "best" materials for our customers. On December 7th, the Library Journal posted an article entitled "Best Databases 2011." Beaufort County Library provides several of the highlighted databases for our customers.
These are Biography in Context; Gale Virtual Reference Library; NetLibrary; Encyclopedia Britannica; Auto Repair Reference Center; and the oft expounded upon Ancestry Library Edition that is purchased through the BDC.
Over the next month or so, I'll be posting entries about some of these databases here in Connections. Plans are underway to post helpful tips and a demonstration video on the BCL's website soon. I'll provide those links when they come available.
