Free online databases (temporarily)

I discovered today on CALIBK12 that Gale is offering trial usage of a myriad of online databases to the California School Library Association. They are quite good and would enable a middle school or high school student to research most anything.

Gale is not being altogether altruistic. CSLA is attempting to convince the state to do a buy for all schools. For the time being, Gale is giving access to school libraries, but that will not be forever. That is why I made a new Databases page for my website. Instead of just placing them on my research page, it made more sense to put it in a place where it can all be deleted (should it go away).

I have already added them to the Tehipite LMC website. You can take the links from there.

It is also available here.
