For NOVELny: Support Summer Reading with your Gale NOVELny Resources

Your summer reading programs play an important role in encouraging students to keep their skills up and be better prepared for the new school year by engaging literacy skills. Your NOVELny resources can support these programs with additional reading materials to strengthen understanding of texts, engage readers with critical analyses of texts, and foster close reading of text. We’ll explored these ideas and more in this session.
Duration: 30 Minutes
Okay, books about the top of the hour, let me go and get the recording going, and we'll get underway

Alright. Hello, everybody and welcome I’m Stacey Knibloe.

with Gale. Glad to be here for our novel.

New York webinar support summer reading with your gale NOVELny Resources.

What we wanted to do with this session. is give you some tools to help support your summer reading programs and activities. and we've been planning for these for a while, but we thought this might be helpful to maybe provide some

additional resources. to your patrons and students as they are taking part in any of your programs and incorporate these resources.

Help folks think critically about maybe what they're reading and keep those student minds active during these summer months.

So what we're gonna do is talk first about some goto resources from now, New York, that might fit in really well with your your programming and your activities.

And certainly with the theme. from Csl.

P. the summer about oceanography but then also you know of course that's not the only thing folks will be reading about.

So we want to share some other great support kind of as soon as they're great content.

They can support any topic, and then we'll get into the resources about how to find what you need.

You know, provide some, some search tips, and browse tools to let you explore and find what's available in the resources, and then how you can get it into your patrons and students hands.

So you know, different ways to bring folks right into the resource.

Make it really easy for them to find this content, and then hopefully continue to use it and make use of everything they find.

And then, as always, we'll wrap up with gale support.

So where can you go after today, when you've got question, So of course you can reach out to me the rest of your gale team, and we've got lots of great on demand tools, so they wanna make sure and share that as well

now, as we go through, feel free to jump in with questions or feedback anytime we have.

You know good amount of time to cover what we want to cover so don't hold back any questions Feel free to ask them as they come to you.

I'll keep an eye on the chat in the q a as we go through.

So jumping at any point we'll go ahead and get started.

So up first, wanted to just give a quick refresher about the gale resources that come to you through NOVELny.

You have some of our gale and context databases really popular.

I'm sure during the school year for homework help but just also good in terms of general, you know reference type needs You've got a great collection of periodical resources.

We're going to take a look at a couple of those today.

But lots of good stuff for magazines, newspapers, journals, and the like.

We have a business resource. yeah business insights essentials and just a quick note about that while we're talking about it.

It's gonna get an interface. upgrade this summer, and it will look more like the other gale resources that you have from now in New York.

So don't have anything firm to tell you about when it's coming, but it is on its way.

So for those of you who may use that resource that it's probably some good news we'll get it more in line with all the tools and features that you have in other gale.

Resources, but the go to resources for today. I think that you would use most often to support summer reading are here on this next slide.

So gale and context elementary is a great place for our younger users.

Find answers to their skills, build up or finances to questions, build up their their research skills, built their information, literacy, skills, and lots of great non fiction content that can help support with their reading.

We move up into our middle school resource students with Gale and context. Middle school.

And really these are arranged around reading levels so it's, not so much that you're tied to a great level with these resources.

But really reading levels. You kind of go into the one that you need that.

That suits. We're also going to talk when we get into the resources about how you can refine that even further and look for a specific reading levels.

And then Gale and Contact, supposing viewpoints always a really popular resource in New York.

This is a database that looks at social issues what's happening today in the world, and all different viewpoints on what's happening.

But this is, you know, probably most appropriate ring level, wise for high school students, for adults.

Really an excellent resource. We find middle schoolers in there here, too. now and then.

Of course, you'll be the best judges but It is a really excellent resource for kind of keeping up with critical thinking skills.

During the summer once and at any point right we always want that And then, lastly, we'll take a look at 2 of the largest periodical collections that you have from now in New York.

Gale, Jerry, one file and gale academic, one file.

So tons of magazines and academic journals.

They also have a good amount of news coverage, and some kind of quick, ready reference type sources.

But really it's about the the magazines and journals here, and i'm gonna show you how you can actually cross.

Search these collections together, so we'll make them kind of into one database when when we look at them.

But those are the ones we'll be focusing on do again.

Feel free to use the chat of the Q. A. if you have questions about any of the other resources have to take those.

So let's go ahead and dive in and talk about finding what you need.

So i'm gonna start out with our youngest users, So when I was at the library that was summer reading was, you know, really for everyone.

But I think that the kids always had the most fun with it, and I think Gale and context elementary can be a great support for those younger readers and take advantage of all of the really interesting facts.

And interesting things they can find out in the databases.

So we do, of course, always have a search box and perfect when you know what you're after, but I always like to encourage

Our library staff to kind of look around the resources you can get a sense of what's here.

So i'm gonna use a lot of our browse tools today, and if we are, of course, talking about reading our literature topic here can come in really handy.

And we start, you know, building information literacy skills with these resources. right? So we're taking a big topic and starting to narrow it down.

So kids can see how you deal with lots of information So I thought we take a path down the authors list.

So I was think it's really interesting. to learn more about the people who are writing the books that you love, and these are our featured authors in the resource.

Other authors, of course, covered here these are just some that we're highlighting.

So imagine you're seeing a lot of familiar names and faces here, particularly in the children's library, and go ahead and use Jason Rightals I've got to see him speak at a couple of library conferences and if

you ever have the chance? I would definitely encourage you he's really engaging speaker?

And all of the topic pages that you land on here.

Give you a little bit of info right away. So, really engaging right away, we get some the beginnings of one of the biographies, and then some quick facts.

So you can learn more about the person. and then, as we scroll down lots of other great content.

But I wanted to point out something in particular again. We Were talking about how the databases are grouped around reading level.

You'll find that even more refined when you get into the resources.

So each of our encounter databases use kindergarten levels. So these icons here, these little squares, with the number of dots there level one level 2, or what we're seeing here, So level one is going to be maybe more

K. through 2 grade levels or reading levels from me.

Arab grade levels level. 2 is going to be integrates 3 through 5.

So this will be a little bit better of an idea of depending on the age of the reader.

You're working with, and for Jason reynolds probably gonna stick more to level 2.

But what you might also notice about these 2 articles. Let me go ahead And kinda point out here exact same title, exact same source.

Really the only difference is that content. level that's because we've leveled this biography. So we've taken it and written it at 2 different reading levels, and if I go into one say level 2 you know maybe i'm

working with a fifth grader, you get a little more text with it.

You get a little more longer sentences. Maybe you know some some longer words. things like that.

If you get in there, though, and maybe you find the the the reader, that you're working with is is struggling a bit when you're in an article that's been leveled you can always switch back and forth between the

other level so we could we could drop down to level 2.

Go ahead and get ready strong, so I can click on it or sorry.

Drop down a level one, and we can see this will be slightly shorter sentences.

Shorter paragraphs. We can get a words to know.

Glossary to help with the maybe more difficult words in the sentence.

So you can find maybe what's appropriate so maybe if you're doing a group rate, or something like that you can adjust for the readers that you're working with and point them.

To the content. So you'll find this for a lot of biographies.

You'll find this for a lot of the reference content In fact, let's go ahead and show off some reference content here for one of our other topics.

So again, lots of good stuff for for children's authors and Gale and context elementary.

I'm going to jump back to the home, case though and picking up with this year's theme oceans of possibilities.

I thought we could explore under geography. just double check minutes.

There we have a whole oceans and sees dedicated topic.

And again, just like we featured authors page there's more content than what's listed here.

These are just kind of the most popular and feature topics so I thought we'd take a look.

Maybe our coast here in in New York we always talking about the Atlantic Ocean that we take a look at Pacific.

And again these pages lay out very much the same, you know, when you get to a portal.

So bit of info there at the top. Some quick facts.

We get into more book articles some more reference content that's where you'll find a lot of leveled content to you.

We've got news articles and so on and of course, I always love the pictures we've got related topics to send us to other entries which can be really handy, but I wanted to point out some of the reference

content. So you know, learning about oceanography and the like is, you know, part of the summer reading program this year, and I always love the black perch kids almanac or geography, because it is so visual.

You get a lot of contacts, so we can see all right.

Well, where is the Pacific Ocean on the globe?

So you get that context? And then there's lots of good You know facts and information about the Pacific Ocean.

We have lots of good data here again. lots of images. So you know it can look really different in different.

Places. So it's something We might wanna share with our our readers and I'm gonna turn it over to my colleague Lindsey Barfield.

She's another one of our trainers to talk about our get link tool.

This is a way you can drop yourers right where you want them.

So, Lindsey, i'll go ahead let me go ahead and stop sharing so you can take over from there and take it away.

Thank you, Stacey. all right. Hello, everyone, Asks you said my name is Lindsey Barfield.

I'm one of the newer trainers here here at Gale, so i'm very excited to be here with you, and have a few minutes.

Stacy was kind enough to let me show you this really awesome tool we have in our products.

Let me share my screen here. Alright, So when I think about summer reading, I think about my experience.

I was an educator for a few years. in middle grades, math and science.

So I know our summer sources is coming up so i've already found an article here for you, and gale in context. middle school.

When I think about wanting to get my students reading. sometimes.

A really great way to do that is point out just the important pieces that you know are gonna kind of tie them in and get them interested in a subject.

So when you're looking at an article here you can read through, pick out some important pieces.

So I see here, this is talking about the summer solstice.

I can highlight that it says the date explains what it is there's some more information down here below on the winter solstice.

I can highlight that maybe add a note tell my students. This is the longest 9 of the year, and when I've done what I want with this piece, and I'm. ready to share it out.

Have my students see it, whether it's on twitter Facebook if you use an Lms.

If your library has a website, you can use this nice feature up here called Get Link.

So when you click on that it's going to give you a Url, you can select copy it, and then paste it wherever you're gonna put it.

So again, Twitter, Facebook, Lms, wherever that may be.

And not only is it going to bring your students when they click on it directly to that article, but it's also going to have whatever you put on there. So all of your highlights all of your notes Another really great thing to point.

Out about get Link is on your original. If you also know that maybe you have a specific group of students that maybe they would need a bigger font size.

So you want to make it larger. change the background color, maybe.

Have a larger line spacing. You can do all that yourself, and then have it ready for your students.

So when you get that link, and you copied it, and they click on it.

Those features are still there for them when they access the piece so again.

It's really great for you to kind of customize exactly what you want your students to see.

You might have noticed also, when States he was training before, that the get link is always going to be up here.

So even if you have, like a specific search that you want to create.

So maybe you know you want students to look at summer sources, but you want them to have a little freedom with what they look at.

You can apply some filters to make sure it's the right reading level.

Maybe you only want news articles. You can do that, and then you can get a link just to that.

Search and share that with your readers. So get link is a really great feature.

It's available in your products to kind of customize what you want your students to see, and easily get that into their hands.

Stacey. Sorry I was muted there. sorry thanks Lindsey.

I'm actually just gonna correct one thing when you use highlights and notes.

Those are actually particular to your session so they wouldn't show up for your users with get Link. after it's happening right now, because you're in one session.

But it's actually a privacy issue so when you create highlights and notes within the databases they're particular just to your session.

And then, when you're done, they kind of disappear but that is a great way to kind of share information with your users. So i'm gonna talk about another tool where you can actually kind of bring those highlights and notes.

With you to your to the folks you want to share with.

So I apologize when the database kind of fools you into thinking they'll still be there because you're in.

You're in your session still so we'll we'll talk about ways to to do that, too.

But yeah, it is, it's a privacy issue so we don't track any user information after your session.

Then. so all right. Well, but thanks for sharing a great great tool to drop users right where you want them.

So lots of different ways, and we'll continue to talk about get Link, as we.

We kind of examine some other resources. as Well, so Lizzie, i'm gonna go ahead and share screen.

I might steal it from you, share mine. So I bring that back. Alright, so I could do the same thing here that get Link is just a persistent Url can use it all over the place like Lindsey.

Said, but I also want to hop into the Middle school resource and kind of share where we can take some content there as well.

So again feel free to share any questions about the elementary resource.

And the chat or the q a so with dealing contacts. Middle school. We also have that capability to capability to browse the database a bit, and we've got a literature topic here as Well, and since we're aging up with our

users. we've the interface is a little more sophisticated, and the content.

Of course the reading level is going to jump up for us, and and we have a much longer kind of featured.

Topics here under under literature than we do with elementary and I thought i'd pick one of my favorite books that seems to still grab kids a wrinkle in time, and we've got a dedicated

portal to it. Oh, hang on, I think we've got something in the Q.

A. Can you explain how this can use for high school students? Absolutely.

Sandra. we're gonna go ahead and get to the opposing viewpoints which I think will be appropriate for high school as well as the periodical data.

But actually for middle school, as well and that's one of the great things about Gatlink is you drop students right where you want them.

So, even if their high school students and you send them to a middle school database, it's not them choosing it right.

They're not choosing a database that's maybe lower grades in their end. so you know they don't, you know.

Make might feel a little sad about that when you scout links is you're putting them right where you want them.

They may not even notice. You know the middle school here in the header, and you drop them right. We want them. So really you can use these databases with any age.

User it's. opposing viewpoints and the periodical databases that reading level wise are generally gonna work for high school students. But there's no reason you couldn't use it with middle school as well or use middle school

as well with high school students. So what I wanted to point out here

We, of course, are going to have great reference content, you know.

Nice plot summary, you know. Wrinkle and time, maybe, can be a little confusing.

The plot summary can help illuminate some things. Talk about different types of genres and things like that.

Of course, a great biography from mainland legal we've got some great magazine our articles go to.

That's one of the things that helps support the content we're using content that you would find in the library and kind of exposing them to different types of sources.

And what I love about the magazine articles is they get a bit more kind of critical in nature of a work.

We have a couple here that actually for me i'm going to go ahead and use this one building test directs another dimension to a wrinkle in time.

It's a little hard to understand a test direct and you know of course, the ladies of the books are explaining it for us, but i'll tell you this article actually illuminated it for me a little better. we just got just a short

article here about. You know what the Tesla is, and and how it plays into the book.

And you know, could be again really illuminating for the reader.

So helping support what they're reading, maybe for fun with a little bit of non fiction to help expand their minds a bit.

Okay, Sandra, i'll i'll point those out let me.

I'm gonna leave your question there's cause I can mention that when we get into the academic resource, so hold on, for that will put a pin in your question there for a minute.

So if I want to share this with users here's a way. you know Lindsey mentioned our highlights and notes features.

So it is a really handy tool, but it's good for your session, and active in the database.

So if I create a highlight, it's gonna save it for right now.

But when I leave the database we clear it out.

There is a way, though, to share this information with your users. and actually let me go ahead and create a note here, too, so you can see where that shows up.

So not a very illuminating note but i'll take it.

So when you create these highlights and notes we have a feature here that'll let you take them with you Really, all of our tools will.

But any of the send 2 options, the download and print will grab all your highlights and notes.

But if you share it to Google drive or microsoft one drive once it's there, you can share it out with anyone else as well.

So another way to get content into your Reader's hands. So let me go ahead and go over to my Google drive, so we can see where that went.

We put it in a folder named after the database that you're using.

So heal, and context, middle school and there's my article happens really quickly, and when you get into the document you'll see within it.

There's the highlights that I created and then down at the bottom.

It reprints those highlights and gives my notes So now that it's here in Google drive it's mine to do with what I like.

So I can use the share feature the Google offers, and, you know, send it in an email to users.

Use the link that they provide and share it. with others and Then they're gonna get to see my highlights and notes, too, so you can, of course, do that right within high within Google drive.

You know they've got a a highlight and note feature themselves.

You could do it there as Well, but that's a way to kind of communicate with your users, and I've got another example here.

I thought I'd share You could almost have an online discussion within a Google Doc, This is a criticism of a work that no sorry.

This is an interview with an author of a book we were reading in my book club, and we just kind of m made notes on it. So it's a great way to have this kind of asynchronous.

You know discussion whenever we can to pop in and talk about the book if we can all get together.

So you can do a lot with the Google Drive and Microsoft one drive options as well.

Great way to share content and and get folks discussing, or even just, you know, against sharing info.

So the Google drive feature very handy. Go ahead and jump back, and oh, sorry.

Looks about lots of windows open here. Here we go, all right, so let me go ahead, and I wanted to share again.

Our closing viewpoints resource i'm gonna pop in there quickly.

Just keeping an eye on the clock, and we have, of course, a database.

That is all about critical thinking. right? So this is gonna talk about different social issues.

Provide viewpoints on them, Provide reference contents.

You can just learn more about them statistics, current periodicals, and really inform someone around around a topic.

It is a really wide-ranging database in terms of what's covered.

So I just wanted to kind of briefly show the the browse list a bit here, but it is updated frequently, as you'll find new topics getting added updated.

Ones. you know everything under the sun kind of could be covered here, and here I am actually gonna go ahead and search.

So kind of coming back to the summer reading thing. Theme pardon me, we do have a portal for oceans, so lots of you know, opinions of things around, you know, environmentalism and the like having to do with oceans,

the overview, though, is a nice way to just get introduced to the topic.

But then, as you drill down the the big thing with the post viewpoints, databases of course the viewpoints that live here, so we've got a handful of featured viewpoints which if i'm just getting to

know a topic that's often where I like to start so what are some of the issues surrounding oceans, and then the full viewpoint list.

We've got a lot more, and you can really see the role that it plays in a lot of other issues as well.

So all the shades of gray within a topic.

And what I like particularly about this oceans example is nobody's really against options, right?

It's not a pro con type of issue but there are issues within it that are right, so that's what the feature viewpoints really illuminate and get people thinking and you have really built into a lot of the

viewpoints questions to get people thinking when when we take these articles. What we've done is gotten them from places they've been published before.

So people who know what they're talking about have a feeling about have feeling facts and info about it an issue.

We get permission to publish that and we add this article commentary. Tell you a little bit about who the author is, and and you almost little, you know, abstract of the article you're about to read and then many of these will also include

add, as you reconsider the following question: so again jump starting that critical thinking, when you're reading something that has an opinion here, some things to think about specifically for this article.

So it's a great way to to again. get people thinking about an issue, and again keeping in the summer reading.

Thing you know learning about oceans in this case. So another way to draw folks into content. and and for our folks who work in K 12 spaces.

This will probably be a familiar one, but wanted to point out Google classroom appear at the very top of the banner.

This is a tool that really anyone can use You don't have to be associated with the school. You can create through your Google account, a classroom page.

And this is a really nice solution for those of you in public libraries who may be, you know you've got your web page, but it maybe you can't contribute to it.

Or add anything to it. The Google classroom page is a great place for you to gather content, put links and share that with.

Say folks that are in a reading group with you, or again, maybe just around your summer reading, you know.

Post you know, to this Google classroom page, and really what it does. It's very simple, very easy to use as you can imagine.

You just kind of walks you through posting to your Google classroom page, and it just uses that gap link that Lindsey talked to us about.

It is a way for you to basically post a url but it just gets embedded.

So here i'll kind of give you an example what that looks like, but embeds that get link to your Google classroom stream.

So, but keeping an eye on the clock here, I do want to jump into the rest of the resources.

So i'm actually gonna close out that window we'll kind of move on here.

But lots of ways to push content out to your users.

So the last couple of resources we're going to look at i'm actually gonna pop over to the gale common menu.

So I'm using our appear in the upper left hand corner the library event menu, and then view gale product menu.

This shows you your resources from getting and you'll notice There is let me go ahead and use my tool again.

Here across. search item on the menu. So this lets you cross.

Search Yale databases, and depending on the resources you have from Vo you may see more than one option here.

But gale power Search is going to scoop up as many resources as it can.

So I'm gonna grab both academic one file in general one file. Actually, i'll kind of grab everything when you come into power search.

You'll see on the homepage It gives you the options for what you, the databases you can kind of scoop up and and search all at once.

So i'm actually gonna go ahead and select them all we'll just why not, you know, grab them all that I can. You'll notice scaling contact, supposing viewpoints is here all of the deal one file

databases are here, and then, depending on your own collections, you might see some other options here, too.

But with your novel data, not New York databases.

These are the ones you can cross, search, and in this case we do have a nice, simple, easy, very Google s search.

But one of the really powerful tools in our databases is advanced.

Search, and with an advanced search you are the boss, which is why I love it.

Advanced search. really lets you design your search and you Choose the search fields You're gonna search in.

You choose the limitters that you want to place on this search.

And actually, Sandra, this is one of the things I wanted to mention for your question.

So for folks who are looking for very advanced content.

Maybe pure, reviewed our articles or referee. we have the option to limit to peer reviewed journal, so you could just isolate your search right out of the gate.

I would also, it may be, and let me just pop back to the product.

Many for a minute. You look at the periodicals list vale academic one file that's one of the databases and cross searching right now.

But you pop into this resource. You get some kind of specific paths.

You can go down with different disciplines that may apply for some of the the seminars that you were you're mentioning to to highlight content. so i'd examine this resource.

As well. let me come back now. let's say We've got parents who are reading along with their students and reading something.

By Jason Reynolds, I can seek out content about him.

Whoops, a typing subject. Make Jason Reynolds my subject of the article, and one of my favorite limiters is document type.

I love to read interviews with authors and I think it's a great way to get to know them to be deeper into their work, so I can tie that together I want the earth to be about Jason

Reynolds, and I want it to be an interview i'm just tying those things together with my search here now.

So we get other people who are being interviewed about Jason Reynolds.

We could. But a lot of these are, of course, gonna be interviews with Jason Reynolds.

The other thing. you want to keep an eye out in this database.

We do more of a combined search result. so if you look across the top here.

I've got 4 magazine articles those are going to be more general. Audience: I've got 3 academic journals.

So again, if i'm more academically minded I might want to take a look at those first, and I've got some news content as well.

So come in from newspapers news wires so keep an eye on that it doesn't pull them all into one list. You better switch between them, which is a little different than what we do in the context databases. so here.

We have. I could take a look at these again. learn more about Jason Reynolds about how he writes.

If I take a look at the academic options, these might be a little lengthier, you know, a little more in depth, and find some really great stuff.

And again, like Lindsey mentioned, would get Link I could use this Url, and drop folks right into this search result.

And what's really cool is saying He does another interview with get Link, It runs the search again.

Every time it gets clicked, so I would see new articles pop up here, too.

So really great way to kind of keep up with people with things you're interested in.

You can also set up search alerts that will do that for you but we'll save that for another session.

So this resource is again bringing together a lot of databases into one place.

So you've got a lot of great content here it can support.

Not just your summer reading programs, but I would say if you run book clubs through the years.

There's lots of great literature journals here.

It is really a database. it's going to cover everything under. and of course you keep up with news as well.

Lots of good stuff here, and there are ways, of course, with just doing a search to seek out content.

So, for example, i'm going to use just make sure I get the title correct.

Sing unbarrassing by just me more when the national book award years ago, and our search assist is helping me out here.

It's gonna kind of point me in the right direction so I can isolate.

Maybe my search to that novel take advantage, and our our search here is doing kind of a work behind the scenes to give you the most relevant articles first.

So i'm gonna there's gonna float to the top of your results generally, which is nice.

So I can see these are all you know looks like we've got some critical essays, some reviews, and so on interviews and the like. again.

I could pop over to academic journals to news at that sources.

There, and you can use the document type limiter when you get here, too, so I can choose.

Oh, I want critical essays. I want interviews, and I want reviews.

Apply those and just narrow down a bit, and really learn more about the author and their work, and what people thought of the work.

Of course, what an actual bookboard! so you know pretty highly.

But great way to find out more for your adult readers as Well, the things that they're reading, and because this database is updated several times throughout the day right away for for new books.

You're getting reviews you know it's it's very quick to respond.

So the critical essays sometimes take a little longer to to get developed with both user here immediately, and audio book reviews and and all of them.

So lots of great stuff here, so let me go ahead and just check the Q. A.

I think we're in good shape let's see do we have an app.

We do, we have actually let me visit our support site, so I can share it with you.

So let me use this P. Actually, let me open up another one, because I do have a couple of things I want to show you on.

Those I won't leave those open so if you go to support that Galecom.

You will find under our tools menu here in the banner access my library. That's our app. it's available in both the App App Store and Google play, and it lets you get access to your databases or really in

some cases, because of where you are, you could access to it to another.

Libraries at public libraries access because you're nearby but this is a great way to draw folks into the resources.

The databases are also let me pop back into one for one mobile responsive.

So if I say, shrink my my window down here to maybe the size of a phone screen, you'll see the database responds.

So even just going through your website and accessing the databases, you get that kind of mobile, friendly view of it.

But the app is available as well there's of course no cost.

If you look for your library in it. and don't see it just give a call out to our tech support, and they can get you added.

So I think we've got most covered I think all of our NOVELny Database.

Libraries are in there, but just in case wanted to mention you can let us know if you don't appear there.
