Knowledge Ontario Launched

Submitted by lawlord on Filed under Library News:  Mills Innis Thode Endeca Content Spotlighting e-Resources

The Ministry of Culture and the Management Group of Knowledge Ontario are pleased to announce that negotiations have been successfully completed to supply all publicly funded libraries in the Province of Ontario with a core suite of digital products. The resources contained in these databases will provide access to information that is needed everyday by individual Ontarians and students of all ages. The resources and materials go well beyond what is available on the Internet offering full text of newspapers, magazines and books. Access to these databases will be available from wherever people are in Ontario; at home, work, or school. The variety of information to be found in the databases will satisfy the youngest school child, the researcher in a University lab, in fact any citizen of Ontario.

The databases roll out across the province beginning in January. Users authenticated on a library system through the web will have access to the astonishing range of information to be found in the databases. To preview the databases which will be available through Knowledge Ontario go to http://access.gale.com/ontario/ to find a core list of databases to be supplied by Thomson Gale. Records for these products have already been added to MORRIS.

In addition to all the databases listed at this site, Knowledge Ontario has also licensed Canadian Reference Centre from Ebsco. Records for titles included in this package will be added to MORRIS shortly.
