A few years ago the the Southeastern NY Library Resources Council purchased several of the Gale Virtual Reference Library (GVRL) titles, which appear in the same list with the titles offered by NOVELny. Beginning on April 1, 2009, GVRL titles will no longer be offered through NOVELny, but the SENYLRC titles will remain. All not-for-profit libraries in the SENYLRC region will continue to receive the following GVRL titles from April 1, 2009 – April 30, 2010:
Encyclopedia of World Biography , 2nd ed., 23v, 2004
Encyclopedia of World Biography , Vol. 24, 2nd ed., 2005
Encyclopedia of World Biography , Vol. 25, 2nd ed., 2005
Encyclopedia of World Biography , Vol. 26, 2nd ed., 2006
Encyclopedia of World Biography , Vol. 27, 2nd ed., 2007
UXL Encyclopedia of Science , 2nd ed., 10v, 2002
Worldmark Encyclopedia of the Nations , 11th ed., 6v, 2004
A complete description of these resources is available on the SENYLRC webpage at: http://www.senylrc.org/services/electronicresources/gvrlinfo.pdf
These GVRL titles are listed with your library’s Gale databases. If you do not see them listed, please call me.
There is no fee for libraries to access to these titles. The Technology Review & Advisory Committee (TRAC) authorized SENYLRC to continue to fully subsidize the $5,000 annual access fee using Regional Bibliographic Database (RBDB) funds.
