TEL: TENNESSEE ELECTRONIC LIBRARY
SEVIERVILLE – Recently the Tennessee State Library and Archives signed a new contract with Thomson Gale for resources available through Tennessee Electronic Library (TEL). The contract spans five years from October 1, 2007 to September 30, 2012.
TEL is collection of subscription databases made up of over 100 million print sources that gives Tennesseans an easy path to reliable information from encyclopedias, reference books, magazines, journals, and much more. In most cases, TEL provides full-text articles, with full citation information. Tennesseans can log on to TEL from any internet-accessible computer-24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Go to the TEL portal at www.tennessee.gov/tsla and click "TEL" under the "Catalogs" heading. (Call your local library for the off-site password.) TEL can be accessed at any of the public libraries in Sevier County.
New features will be added to TEL beginning October 1, 2007. InfoTrac Science, a subset of InfoTrac OneFile, will contain science-related titles that will make searching for science articles easier for students. Also, InfoTrac Custom Newspapers will provide full-text newspaper articles from more than 140 newspapers, including selected articles from The Chattanooga Times-Free Press, The Commercial Appeal, and The Knoxville News-Sentinel.... read the rest of the story by Subscribing now.
