[MS & HS] Back to School Success => 2-Minute Video Featuring In Context Databases

The folks at Gale created a 2-minute video aimed at introducing parents and students to the In Context databases available through OSLIS. Feel free to include the video in parent communications or to ask teachers to do so, to post the link on your library and/or school website or social media accounts, etc.

If you write a short blurb related to the video, you might want to include your Gale login information, although please remember that logins cannot be posted on a public-facing website. Because I know you’re extra busy right now, below is a very short article that you can personalize, change, or ignore. ;-)

If you have questions, please ask.
