LiLI Tools for Schools
A new guide is available for school library staff. Use it for your own information or share it with your teachers. The guide, found at http://guides.lili.org/ToolsForSchools, highlights the LiLI databases of most interest in a K12 environment. For each database, we’ve provided a brief overview, an explanation of why you might use it (useful features, etc.), and links to try it out. There are also varieties of handouts to use with classes, presentation scripts, scavenger hunts, and other tools to help you introduce the databases to teachers and students.
