Resources and Services for Texas School Libraries

  • (NEW!) Gale has added LitFinder to TexQuest's literary resources.  And now you can search all Gale literary resources at the same time using Gale Literacy Sources, which is replacing Artemis Literary Sources.  LitFinder spans history and the globe with online poems, short stories, essays, and plays from over 80,000 authors. Gale Literacy Source is a new, mobile-friendly one-stop shop for all of Gale's literary content.
  • ChalkDUST has been updated with the new TexQuest resources added since June 2016.  They include Britannica E-STAX, EBSCO eBooks, Gale's Science in Context, ProQuest's SIRS Discoverer, and TalkingBooks.net.  The updated usage statistics include a new metric for Full Text Documents, which is used for Britannica E-Stax, EBSCO eBooks, Gale, and ProQuest's SIRS Discoverer.
