Gale Resources Online at Bondurant Community Library

New Cengage/Gale Resources Online at the Bondurant Community Library

There’s a new sheriff in town, figuratively speaking.  I’m talking about brand new research, language and learning databases and resources now available online through the Bondurant Community Library website! 

The transition from EBSCOhost to Cengage/Gale Resources is explained on the State Library of Iowa’s website:  “The State Library of Iowa in partnership with the Iowa Academic Alliance has awarded a contract for statewide delivery of services to three database vendors.  These resources will be available to all public and academic libraries across the state of Iowa.  This package will offer greater utility to public libraries as well as fulfilling academic libraries’ need for high quality reference and journal resources.”

What does this mean for you?  It means as a library patron you’ve got access to some of the top research services available.
