Creating a reference set - virtually

Virtual Text Sets
How can we support teachers and students if we don't always have the print resources? Don't forget to explore the material we have in Worldbook, EBSCO and the Gale Virtual Reference Library. Links to the articles and books can be shared on a website or emailed to your teaching colleague. (No password needed for school access, ID and PW needed to view from home.)
