So welcome to your training for the Florida Electronic Library.

Today's session is discover gale resources for public library programming.

My name is Tammi Burke. I'm your Gale trainer.

Any questions that you have throughout today's training. Please feel free to use that box today's session is going to focus on periodical content from magazines and newspapers and other periodical resources that you have access to that are available to support your library's programming and the

hobbies or interests of your patrons.

So our focus is more on those hobbyists and patrons that are coming in and looking for a large amount of information.

And you have it available in your digital resources that you have from the Florida Electronic library.

So today you will learn how to quickly find a variety of content.

We will be focusing a lot on content today, simply and easily, with different search options within your gale resources that you have from your gale resources that you have from Afl.

Let's first talk about our agenda, and we will be starting with how to access your fel resources and an overview of the individual resources that we are going to talk about today.

We are going to talk about 3 different ones, and possibly 4. If we have time.

I th a fourth one in there today, just so wanted to show you a quick search in that last resource.

So we are looking at browsing and searching for content.

Within these periodical resources and different sharing options that you have available from directly within the resource.

Any questions, please feel free to ask throughout. I will stay on the line at the end of this training.

If there's any additional questions, I'll also leave you at the end of this training, where you can go for training materials and contact information for one-on-one support.

A folks at Gale that are there to help.

To access your fel resources. You can use the Florida electronic library website.

It is organized. Very well, I have to say I love how it's organized, but also take a look at your ebook collection.

So you do have ebooks that are already curated into collections for you you have a large ebook collection, and that was done last summer into these great collections.

So you have some custom collections already created for you. I am going to share with you.

If you are accessing through the Florida Electronic library website, you go into subjects I'll share with you where you're going to find the resources that we're going to talk about today. It's really quite simple.

Now you may be using your direct Urls, which is fantastic, because if you are using your direct Urls for your individual resources, your usage is going to roll up to your library, your users are automatically authenticated right into the resources so because we use that geo authentication so it looks

geographically at where their located at, and then it'll take them directly into the resource.

So if you are, you know, if you happen to be accessing through that Florida electronic library, it will look at the area that the person is accessing from, and that usage will roll up to the nearest public library.

So keep that in mind if you're not using those direct Urls.

If you're using the Florida Electronic library.

Both options are great, and you know it's completely up to you what information or what data you want to capture when you are accessing the Florida Lic library website.

I am going to take you through the process, or I should say, model going through subjects, and that is the quickest way to find the for resources.

3 for sure, we're going to talk about. And that fourth one I'm going to try and throw in there that we're going to talk about today.

So let's talk about those individual resources. Now you have a variety of resources available from Gale, from the Florida Electronic library, and we have, as I mentioned, we selected for today.

So these are magazine journals and newspapers that you're going to find so great periodical content.

The first resource we're going to go into is Gale. One file culinary arts.

Now I will tell you anything. With one file in the title is going to be periodical content.

So, it's really easy to remember that. So if it has Gale one file, just understand that you're going to find journals and magazines and newspapers, and there is some multimedia there.

But these are especially these individual ones I'm covering today.

There are more subjects, specific content. So you're going to find periodical publications that are available that are designed or added for culinary arts.

For example, the one that we're looking at right now.

So gil one file culinary arts. It contains more than 5 million articles.

It's coming from a variety of major cooking in nutrition magazines as well as book reference content from Delmar, such as about wine, introduction to catering, advanced bread and pastry, and eat fit be fit are just a few examples.

You're going to find some great features available, and these features are available across all of your gale resources.

So there's shared tools and features, and those are including topic finder.

They're all your resources are mobile, optimized, or mobile, responsive.

So no matter what type of device you're patrons or users are accessing from, they'll be able.

The screen will automatically adjust. And it does. They do support and enhance the search.


The second resource, we are going to go into today is Gale, one file gardening and horticulture, and this resource serves horticulture.

Enthusiasts of all levels, with more than 3.6 million articles, and they're coming from journals and reference titles.

This one also pulls in from Del Mar, and it includes the handbook of Flowers, foliage, creative design.

A computer graphics for landscape architects, and so much more.

The third one that we are going to take a look at today and walk through is the Gale.

One file home improvement. Now this resource is really great for hobbyists and professionals alike.

It puts them. And I love this. This phrasing I can't claim it, but it puts hobbyists and professionals alike on a solid foundation, with more than 4.5 million articles again, you're going to find a titles these are home improvement.

Focus titles, and they are covering topics, including architectural techniques, tool and material selection zoning requirements.

And so, and then, if we have time, I would like to touch into Gale one file.

Hospitality and tourism, now hospitality and tourism provides access journals and magazines and trade publications for that hospitality piece.

But what we would be focusing on is the tourism side.

So this is a great resource for that curious traveler that will they'll be able to find a wealth of information information on state parks and information on planning a vacation and full text travel guys are available within this resource.

So I selected these again focusing more on that programming that happens over the summer.

Maybe you're looking at connecting with your users on on something cooking, maybe recipes.

They're looking for, or, as I mentioned, starting that spring garden, or for you all you know you're already in spring into summer there in Florida.

We're still in the spring phase up here in Michigan, and it is beautiful this week.

But possibly snow on Monday is what they're saying, where it's supposed to be 80 degrees today, and back down to the thirties and forties on Monday.

So such as Michigan. This is lived here almost my whole life.

I did live in Florida, actually for a year in the Port Orange area, and loved it.

But my family's all here. So we moved back. But so you all are experiencing this warmer weather.

I did hear. A cold front came through to your areas there, but you're you're right in the thick of it.

So these gardens, and zoning I mean zoning in Florida, too, is something that that growers or gardeners need to understand, and finding content for that specific information so that the gardening resource is very helpful for that home improvement you're going to find that this resource is really great for

those Diyers, but also for professionals, because you are getting a.

This information, authenticated information that is authoritative.

It's not just a youtuber putting information out there.

You don't necessarily know where that information is coming from, so turn to your library, find this information right?

And why not highlight this in your summer programming or your programming throughout the year with your Florida electronic library resources?

So with that, let's jump into your resources. I'm going to share my other screen, and I'm going to start by sharing with you the Florida Electronic library site.

So I had shared you. Of course you can do a quick search. But the quickest way to find the resources that we're going to talk about today is to go into subjects.

It's working a little slow there. Oh, and it took me right into arts subjects, and go into hobbies.

And he, then here you can see the resources that we're going to cover culinary arts, gardening and horticulture, home improvement, and then hospitality and tourism.

If we have time now, I'm in Michigan, so I will be stopped.

So I'm gonna take a different path into the resources.

But you all should be able to click right into these resources and access them from exactly where you're at.

Let me show in the chat. I will share this link just in case you're not familiar with it.

Always like to share as much information as possible.

So that is in the chat box again if there's any questions that you have throughout the session, please feel free to use that box.

So I already have culinary arts open, and I want to talk to you about a couple of things on the homepage, because I do always like to work in the tools and features, so that you really understand that functionality and the nice thing is with our one file, resource there's some different options.

You can set up so you can set up, search alerts, and you can set up journal alerts.

I'm going to share those hidden gems or those tips and tricks with you today, too, throughout the session, as we are exploring, content.

So let's just talk about the homepage a little bit, and we'll only do it on this one because shared tools and features across all of your resources.

So it makes it really simple. So in the top banner you are going to find, you have the ability or users have the ability to translate the interface so that would be translating all of your navigational tools, and we're at over 34 languages here.

Your users can sign in with Google or Microsoft.

I'm going to sign in with Google today.

And then anytime I wanna send any articles I'm interested in.

I can send them directly to my Google drive. Same thing with Microsoft.

It would send it directly to your Microsoft onedrive.

Now, if we have any K 12 folks on the line today, if you are using Google classroom, or maybe in your public library programming, you have Google classroom if you have study groups or groups that you're working with, especially events, Google classroom is a free resource and we are into it is integrated here.

so that's an option to that. You can if you want to send any information directly to Google Classroom, you can do that right from within your Gale resources.

So let's talk a little bit more about what else I'm seeing on the page.

Of course, we have our basic search and advanced search, but we have topic, finder, subject, guide, search, and publication, search.

We are going to touch into topic finder and publication search, and also advanced search. Today.

So this is a little bit more. It's it's a basic training.

But yet we are pulling in some intermediate to advanced skills. Here.

I wanna give you a variety of information on content, but also those tools and functionality of those tools.

So if we were doing a basic search. And that's where we're going to start today.

Let's say I'm looking for recipes, for heart, healthy foods or heart, healthy diet, and I'm going to start with heart healthy, and my search assist is going to help me out here, and I'm going to choose heart healthy Diet.

Now, and this is from personal experience. My dad had a stroke at the end of January, and we are always looking for a new restaurants to support that heart healthiness of what he is is not his new new normal right.

So when I did, and I shared shared this resource specifically because it does pull in so many magazines.

And you have great magazines in your libraries right?

You may only have one copy of available. Why not direct your users to a resource like this, where they can pull in all these great recipes from multiple magazines?

I have 452 different articles available to me on this subject.

Another thing that I can do, too, is once I've filtered down and found this content, it shows me not just.

It takes me to magazines first, but I have some academic journals.

There's some reference book articles, and also newspaper articles, but what I can do is I can set up a search alert.

So now that I've put in this search, my results are here.

Every time any information is added, any new heart healthy diet information is added I can schedule a search alert, so it'll land.

I'll get an email notification that new content is available, directs, directs my users, and connects them to my library.

Digital content and puts it directly at their fingertips.

So you have the email option, or the Rss feed.

If you are using that in your browser, you can add that we have that URL below that's available.

And with the email you can determine how often you would like to be updated.

So if you just want once a month, you can set that up, and how the form, even the format, that you would like to see.

Okay. And that search alert applies to a couple different things.

So we just did a basic search but let's say I wanted to filter this content down.

I'm seeing a variety of articles here at the top.

Poor heart for your heart into every morning, for example. But maybe I want to filter that down.

I have some, some different filter options, available publication, date maybe I'm looking for everything from the past year.

But you know, with recipes they could be, I mean, I have some.

My grandmother's recipes, that are not from the past year that are amazing.

But maybe I want something new. Maybe I'm looking for something new.

I can choose the past year, past month past week, put in a custom date of range, custom, date, range, too.

Maybe I'm looking for specific subjects.

So someone who's had a heart attack, and I wanna filter that down.

Here are some heart, healthy foods, a heart, healthy diet, and it filters everything down at once.

So anytime use any of these filter oions, it will filter down all of your content at one time.

Now, if I created a search alert, it would send me information related to my search terms, heart, healthy diet, and heart attack.

I can. Let me remove that filter real quick. I have document types available.

So here I have. You can see recipes there.

You're going to find a lot of recipes in the articles and brief articles.

Also publication, titles.

Maybe I want everything from good housekeeping or men's health.

Lexile measures. This really doesn't apply much to this is more for our K.

12 folks, but if you are using, I mean, this is a great opportunity in health class, or also, you know, at the high school level you have a lot of homework is still a part of the curriculum, and students do select that so why not utilize your digital resources.

That you have available. So that's where that might be helpful and then you have that ability to search within.

And this quickly helps you drill down and find that content.

Okay. So that's I just did a basic search and wanted to show you the results.

Now let's go into advanced search, and and also talk to you about that search, alert so that search alert will show up when you do that.

Basic search. Let me go into advanced search. Now with advanced search, I can put in search terms.

I can use the field to really find exactly what I'm looking for.

Maybe I want to search an entire document for a search term.

I could do that. But for today oh, and we also provide search tip operators and special characters.

So we have some information about quotation marks.

But what I'm going to do today is I'm actually going to look for certain document type in my document type.

His recipes. So I'm not going to put in any other information. I just want.

I like to pull everything back and then filter down as kind of my process, so I can click, search here, or at the very bottom of my page.

Both options are available, and it brings back over fourteenth recipes that I have available.

So from this point, if I wanted to search within and drill down and find specific content, I can, or maybe I want to filter by subject.

Maybe I'm looking for some new chicken recipes.

I can filter down to new chicken recipes if I wanted to share this content.

Maybe I'm a medical professional or a student, and I want to a dietitian.

I want to share this content. I can use the get link, tool.

You can use that, get link tool any spot within this resource, even filtered content.

So I talked to you about the so alert.

But you also have the ability to use the get link and provide a persistent Usl back to any spot within this resource, even if you filter down that content.

Okay. So here's a variety of different chicken recipes that I have available.

Maybe I'm looking for instead of a chicken recipe.

Let me remove that. I'm gonna leave recipe there.

The. So I'm gonna search within. Here's another option.

I'm gonna search for drinks maybe I'm looking for a new drink recipe.

Here's ice tea, please.

When I click into that article you can see. Here's the what I need makes about.

And again, these are coming from our magazine. So you're going to have a depends what they're sharing with you here.

But if it's a recipe, chances are you're gonna find that the step by step, instructions for that recipe this one has so happens to have some images available.

Okay, looks like we've got a couple of different teas trade winds.

Tea is here, lavender, caramel, tea.

That sounds good, very chamomile tea, so could be one recipe could be, as we can see, multiple recipes here.

And again, if I wanted to share this, I could quickly use the get linked tool.

But I also, if I wanted to save this, I could send this, so I have some quick signs.

Options here, Google drive Microsoft onedrive email download or print.

Maybe I just wanna print this off. I also have those options here in my toolbar.

So let's say, I'm scrolling down.

I get to this point, and I read Lavender Caramel t and I read Lavender, Caramel Tea, and I'm sold.

I definitely wanna keep this recipe. I can quickly send it to my Google drive on drive or email.

I'm gonna send it to Google, drive. And it's gonna land in a folder touched Gale.

One file. Culinary arts, and it the article, or this document, was, be waiting for me there now.

The very first time I do send a information to Google, I will be asked for permission.

So the it will you will. Your users will get a screen that'll be asking permission to put information into their Google drive, and then, as soon as they close out of this resource, that connection is severed so we don't keep any information, we don't keep any private information and they would have to sign back.

In, as you saw me do at the beginning of the session, and to Google to send information there if they haven't signed in when they sit down and they click the send to.

Then they would be prompted to do that. Okay, alright.

So we have that sent to option. You can also download or print this information off alright.

We talked about advanced search. Now let's talk about publication search.

Let me know if you have any questions and publication. Search lives in under advanced search, so I can always access advanced search.

If I scroll up, it's going to be in my banner.

Click on advanced search, and I can go directly to my publication search.

Now I'm going to go in. I'm going to share with you.

Topic, finder and other tools. I'm including tools to support accessibility.

On the articles to meet all the varying needs of your users.

But those I'm going to build your knowledge as we work through each of the resource and find additional cost.

So if I was looking for a publication, a certain publication, for example, taste of home is a great one.

I don't know if you all have ever used any recipes from taste of home, but I want to see if this publication is available, and I do have taste of home, and you can see I have everything from the last 2 years available here.

If I wanted to go to the most recent publication oops. It's April.

And here is every all the documents from that publication.

It's this best in bubbles. Our test kitchens go to soda makers.

So even getting information on that. This is again, I'm not looking at recipes anymore.

I was looking at a certain publication. So it's going to give me all of that content from that publication.

So again, you might only have one copy of Taste of home in your library.

But here you can digitally access it. You can send it to your Google drive.

You can create a link to individual articles, or this whole collection.

If I wanted to do that. Here's the most recent of taste of home.

I'm and I can share it digitally. I can also, if I, if found in an article that I'm interested in, like let's try this pickled pink.

I can highlight content. So I can highlight, and then I can send this marked up document to my Google drive I'll talk to you a little bit more about highlighting in the next resource so I want to share with you.

You also have one on the other. Popular publications go back to advanced search publication, search.

We have from a full text from 2,008 to current.

So if I again, I can click into the issue this issue one other thing I want to point out is, I do have the ability to search within the publication.

If you look over here to the right hand side. So if I were looking for something specific, I could do that.

But I also can create a journal alert. So every time any information is added, and this one's added every month from bon appetite, I'll get an email if that's how I set it up and let me know the new publication is available, in go on file culinary arts so just

like our search alerts. You can create journal alerts, too.

And this one I was taking a look yesterday, and they had breakfast for dinner, which is a in my house here, but I wouldn't have thought of Cajun chicken gravy and biscuits so great content that you have available within this resource and again.

I was, focusing on on one area. Maybe you're looking at drinks.

As I mentioned some of those publications that you have available within this resource, and it is great, too, to find content or recipes or information.

Heart. Healthy diet is the one that I took a look at today.

But maybe you're looking, you know you have folks that are looking for information they're for weight loss.

They're looking for new information on on weight loss and what we have available here within this resource and not just not just recipes, but food that supports it too.

Okay. And that's just a touch on how this can support programming that is happening in your library.

Now, if we were to go into. Let's go into another resource.

Now we're going to, and I'm going to use my product menu.

So up in the left hand corner of your resource you can always click on this menu, and I can go to my product menu and my product.

Menu has all of my Gale resources.

It takes me to all databases we're gonna go to into the periodicals because that's what we're focusing on today.

And our second resource is now we're switching gears.

We're talking about cooking and restcipes.

But let's talk about our Spring garden.

So again, this one file resource, periodical, content. But this is looking at gardening and horticulture, and we have more than 3.6 million articles available. Now for this search.

Option. I am going to go directly into topic, finder.

Now, topic finder lives here on the homepage, but it also lives under advanced search.

Let me show you when you'd use topic finder as a search option.

And again, this is a shared tool and feature across your resources.

I'm going to do my search from this point, and I'm looking for a flower garden.

And it's visual. It's interactive for any of those folks and I love it, too, because I put in Flower Garden.

And there's some topics here that I wouldn't have thought of to look for right.

I wouldn't. I mean I might. I probably would have thought of landscaping, but I'm thinking of Blooms, and you know here's the flower Garden show design.

I probably would have gone into, but I was. I was thinking more of cutting like which which plants or which flowers can.

I cut from cause it, there's a difference between different flowowering gardens right?

Is this one that you're going to cut from all the time?

Or is it one that you are creating because you want the beautiful flowers around?

And what time of year are they blooming? That's a big question, too.

So we're actually going to go into design. But this is visual.

It's also interactive. And it does look at those key words that are shown most often that you're seeing in the graphics.

Here they're showing up the most often from the search tool so that's why we're seeing them in these tiles.

And you do have the tiles and you do have the tiles.

I should share with you too. You also have the wheel some people prefer the wheel.

That visualization is right here. So the wheel is an option.

Tiles's default, and is probably a little bit more popular.

But we have folks that like both, are one for one as compared to the other.

So if I'm looking at design, maybe I want annual.

So this is, there's 25 articles here when I click into another tile.

It's going to filter that down for me again.

So here's 3 articles or documents that I have available.

Let's go into this first one spring annuals design and plan a backyard flower garden that will lift, spits in a single glance, and I can see here I have my article available.

Start with the plan. So it's a little bit you have some of those instructions that you may need, but what I also love to when you click into any of these articles or documents I have this explore panel on the right hand, side.

So you have the ability to find more information that's related to this content.

So, even though I went into topic finder, I found one document I'm interested in.

I can go back to topic finder at anytime by just clicking back to topic finder.

But I also have this explore panel which takes me through another path maybe there, I'm finding more content here.

I also am seeing any related subjects. So flower gardening is going to be here, so that explore panel really provides great supplemental information based on your search term.

You also have some great tools to support accessibility. You have the ability to translate.

So with magazines, they're either in, you know, in English or they're in another language.

You don't have the opportunity to translate, so you can see how this can support some of your users that are coming into your libraries where you can click that translate button, and you have over 40 linkages to choose from.

So maybe you're highlighting Spanish articles and documents, and you want to share this feature that you can translate the text within these articles that are currently, you know, in English.

So keep that in mind that you can meet all those varying needs of all your users.

You also have the ability to increase or decrease the font size.

For myself, increase is something that I'm very interested in.

I also have the option to just change the display options.

So I can change the color behind the text. And this can be really helpful.

It's a little easier on the eyes, or maybe that off-white.

I can change the font. So if I do need open dyslexic, I have that option available.

If I need to increase, and let me just select open dyslexic if I need to increase the line letter in word spacing, I have those options available, too, and the nice thing is the very first article I click on display options.

And set this up. It sticks with me throughout my entire session.

So until I leave this session this will be sitting here in the same format, no matter what article, and then the final tool to support accessibility is the ability to listen to the text.

So I can listen to the text being read aloud.

Also have some settings here under this little gear. I'm going to share those with you today.

So it does start out and start playing right away. And it's highlights as it's going through the text.

Ure let me get that started for you. So you can see it's highlighting through the text.

The word it's on is in blue, and the rest is in green.

Under the settings. I have some choices. If I wanted to turn that highlighting off, or I wanted to change some of the options, the word, the sentence color. I also have the ability to turn on the enhanced text visibility or slow down or speed up the speed let me play it for you now.

So it pulls out that text and pulls it onto the page.

So not only can you enlarge the text, you can also use this feature to listen to the text being read aloud, and also pull it out onto the page, so really again, help support your users.

If I wanted to. If I was on a mobile device, and I wanted to download and listen to it, just like podcasts, you can download this as an Mp 3 and listen to it at a later time, when I close the box, it removes everything there off of my screen okay, so I wanted to share

with you. We went through the tools of support, accessibility.

We talked about Google and Microsoft already. Let me go into a publication search, and then I will talk to you about highlights and notes.

So we're going to go into advanced search. And we have one more resource to touch into today.

We're going to go into publication search. And the Handbook of Flowers is a great I'm gonna look that one up.

There we go, del Mar's Handbook of Flowers, Foliage, and creative design.

Here it is!

And I have from 2,000 to current again.

I can create that journal alert. I can search within the publication.

We are!

Well, let's just go into this one. The dropdown menu would show me all of that information.

So we have a glossary. We have flowers to where contemporary design styles let's go into flowers to wear, and let's say I'm looking at.

Get this image. I want to highlight some of this information.

I can click and highlight a chunk of text.

Maybe maybe this is.

Interesting information.

I can make a note. I can highlight another chunk of text.

Make another note. Now I can send this marked up document to my Google driver, Microsoft, Onedrive.

But let me share this with you, and I was thinking about this with recipes too.

All this could be really helpful. I'm gonna go into another article real quick here, and let me go back to my results.

Contemporary design styles and techniques.

Classic design styles. Maybe I wanna create a centerpiece. And I'm looking for a great centerpiece for my table, for my spring table.

I'm having a dinner party or something for my table from my spring table. I'm having a dinner party or something like that.

I have a lot of outdoor stuff when it warms up here in Michigan, and I love flowers.

I actually have a side business as a floor and event designer.

So anything related to flowers. I love to learn more about and design styles and techniques is really helpful.

So maybe I want to share this information. I want to keep this.

This is something I need to. I want to review later.

What I can do is I've highlighted this.

My best practice is to send this article somewhere. I've marked it up.

I want to keep what I've marked up and I also want to keep the entire article so I would send it to my Google drive.

Or, again, all those other options, but what's happening is my highlights and notes section is being built out, and this is session based.

So I can view all my highlights and notes, and here I have my first article.

I highlighted on my second article I've highlighted on.

So these are like digital notes. So you can see if you remember the tea time we were looking at that recipe so you can see if you remember the tea time we were looking at that recipe.

Maybe I only want one of those recipes. I could have highlighted just that recipe and since just that one singular recipe, not all 5 of them to my Google drive, and it would be like this and this highlights a note.

Section. So I can send this Google Microsoft email download and print all available.

And it's just these notes that I've taken.

Okay? Or maybe I found. You know, I have many people in my family that are great cooks and they like to modify things.

So maybe they found a part of a recipe. They're interested in.

There was 5 in the article, but only one of them.
