eResource Spotlight – Britannica Library

I’ve decided to give everyone a little run through on some of the eResources we have on offer at CCL that I’m in charge of knowing about at my library, to help let people know about some of the great databases we have access to.

Britannica Adults

One of the collections I am in charge of knowing about is Britannica Library, which is a great place for research into a huge array of subjects (history, geography, science etc). There are 3 separate versions of the website; Adults, Teens and Children. The website and information is formatted and catered to those age groups. A brilliant tool for kids’ homework, teenage assignments and adult research.

Britannica Teens

The adult collection includes:

  • Articles that can be read by the online narrator;
  • An interactive world atlas;
  • Biographies searchable by era, nationality and what they are known for;
  • A country comparison tool;
  • Thousands of images, videos and audio files;
  • Latest news headlines that include coverage from the New Zealand Herald;
  • Te Ara — The Encyclopedia of New Zealand;
  • Tools to email, cite and print.
