DK Egypt resource in GVRL

Looking for good Egypt resources?

The Gale Virtual Reference Library (-see the icon in the Visual Tab of your school library) has recently been enhanced with the title "Ancient Egypt. Eyewitness Expert" by  Dorling Kindersley. You can search this book via the table of contents or the Index, and print or view any of the sections of the book. Students can also access it from home with ID and password.

Students can view the text as if scanned from the original, read sections on an iPad, have the page translated into one of 11 major world languages (machine translation, pretty good, but not perfect), or even download an mp3 of the text being read (machine version, pretty good, but not perfect).
