Tips for using the Vermont Online Library
- Search Alert/RSS Feeds- Make the resources work for you. Search Alerts/RSS Feeds will alert you when new articles are available for your topic. Look for the Create Search Alert link on search result pages or Create Journal Alert link on Publication Detail pages and follow the directions to set up as many as you like.
- Save Lists - Your database shopping cart. Save articles as you find them (click the little checkbox or Save link) and they get added to your Save list. Look for the Saved Items link and you'll find all your items. Now you can print, e-mail, or cite them all in batch.
- Curriculum Standards - Did you know Science In Context and Opposing Viewpoints In Context were built to work with state and national curriculum standards? And that the standards are linked to relevant topics in the resources? Check them out by clicking the Curriculum Standards button in black toolbar.
- Language Translation - Every article in Gale resources is available for on-demand language translation; some offer audio as well.
- Listen - Speaking of audio, check out the Listen button available for most articles. This on-demand tool allows you to listen (or download for listening later) to any article you like. It's also a great tool for increasing reading comprehension.
- Subject Guide - Subject Guide search is available in most Gale resources and is a much more guided approach to searching. You'll zero in on relevant articles while still allowing for manipulating your search.
- Download - Most articles offer HTML or PDF download options for each article. You can download these and make them available to yourself offline. It's a great tool for tablet reading.
- APP - Our app allows for easy access from your mobile device (Apple or Droid). We have an app for Public, College, School (K-12), and special libraries. The Public library app works for anyone - find a library within a 10 mile radius and you automatically get access to Gale resources, no password required.
