I just received this announcement from Gale / Engage Learning regarding updates to Kids InfoBits.

Also, it was brought to my attention that we separated the Gale Reference Collections incorrectly on http://pioneer.uen.org.  We should have 3 - not 2 - links:

- Kids InfoBits
- Gale Reference Collection - Grades 6-8
- Gale Reference Collection - Grades 9-12

Please contact me if you have input - otherwise I will just move forward with that change.

Lastly, here is a link to the Gale webinar recordings:


Let me know if you have any questions.

Hello & Happy Tuesday!

We are pleased to announce that The Britannica Elementary Collection has been added to Kids InfoBits. This is a collection of  3,869 Britannica articles written for students in grades 3 to 6.  The articles cover a wide variety of subjects, including animals, sports, science, history, key figures, literature, technology, countries, government, and more.  Cited as Britannica Student Encyclopedia: An A to Z Encyclopedia (2015), these selections, according to Britannica, “help children gain a better understanding of their world.” Intended to be a resource for homework help and assignments for upper elementary students, the content contains articles, photographs, charts, and tables that help explain concepts and subjects; it also includes maps and flags from across the globe.

Please see attached for example entries and screenshots.  As always, feel free to contact me with any questions.
