The Lancaster-Lebanon IU13 IMS provides districts with access to two popular research databases, Student Resources in Context and Opposing Viewpoints in Context for the secondary-level researchers. These resources provide federated searches to help turn learners into researchers, thinkers, and debaters.

Information for this 2023 Back-to-School Update is provided by our partners at Gale. Check out the full PA August Edition of the Gale Goodness Newsletter from our IU13 representative, Tracy McCreadie. IU13 districts can reach out to her directly concerning changes to their GALE resources through POWER Library. Any educator can sign up here for a virtual or in-person meeting with her to talk through your specific needs.

What's new to the IMS this 2016-2017 school year you ask?  IU13 IMS is pleased to partner with Gale Cengage Learning providing two popular research databases Student Resources in Context and Opposing Viewpoints in Context.  Starting this school year, all our IU13 high schools have access to these two powerful databases for student research.  No account log in information is necessary when using these databases at IU13 or in each high school. When at IU13, go to the homepage on this IMS blog and click on the link to these databases in the upper-left corner under Resource Links.  When in each high school, navigate to your library/media center webpages to find active links to these databases. Notice that once you find the research you are looking for, you can log in to your Google Drive (GAFE) account and annotate the articles all while keeping the notes in your DRIVE!  Learn more about these databases by browsing the slide deck below:
