Go beyond the book with eResources

Your book group meets next week and you’d like some background information on the author.

You read a complex book that left you with mixed feelings.

Your kids are reading a new series, and you’d like to know more about it.

Where do you look for information? Several SDSL electronic resources can help you find what you need.

Gale Virtual Reference Library offers biographical information, authors’ career overviews, plot summaries and literary criticism for junior high through adult readers.

eBooks on EBSCOhost (formerly NetLibrary) contains electronic books of literary criticism, author information and plot summaries for classic works and older authors. It features Cliffs Notes as well as more scholarly resources.

ProQuest provides current author and book information, including reviews for children’s, YA and adult books. It also contains scholarly journal articles about classic works and authors.

SIRS Discoverer, for grades K-9, allows children to learn about their favorite current authors and books by supplying selected full-text articles from children’s magazines and by connecting kids to relevant, appropriate websites.

Let SDSL electronic resources enhance summer reading for all ages!

Free, direct access is available from the State Library website within libraries and schools in South Dakota. Free 24/7 access is available to citizens from home with a library barcode and password.
