When you need background information for research projects or proposals, the Gale Virtual Reference Library (GVRL) is an excellent digital collection to search. Now 5 new digital reference sets are being added in the fields of ethics, health, criminal justice, forensics, and science and technology.
Users in biology, health information technology, nursing, psychology, and social work will find the Gale Encyclopedia of Medicine, 9 volumes, 2015 to be fact-filled. Each disorder described, includes causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatments, and procedures. In fall 2016, Human Diseases and Conditions will be added. Users in computer science, engineering, and information technology, who wish to explore professional ethics in science and technology as well as the ethical and political issues, will want to search Ethics, Science, Technology, and Engineering, 4 volumes, 2015. Profiling and Criminal Justice in America, 2015 will appeal to researchers in Criminal Justice Studies. Those engaged in the interdisciplinary work of crime scenes and legal evidence may turn to the World of Forensic Science, 2 volumes, 2016.
New Google integration tools make it possible to share and download these articles in Google Drive and Docs. A Chrome app makes access to GVRL fast on whatever mobile device or PC you use. Other efficient GVRL tools include translate, read aloud, highlight, annotate, cite, and print. See for yourself how online research continues to change @ the Gardner-Harvey Library.
