Gale is offering tools for the kids staying home but still staying schooled:
A quick update about what we are doing to support your efforts during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak. Gale wants to help. Being there for our librarian and education community is something we strive for every day, and this crisis is no exception. You’re welcome to share this information in your communication channels to New Hampshire libraries.
At the core of our support is a comprehensive online toolkit that provides several support materials to help optimize existing resources, enhance instruction, go virtual, share credible health information, and more. Check back often. The page will be continually updated as we learn more.
Soon, the site will also be updated with tools to help you and your libraries engage effectively across your communities with promotional templates like emails and social media posts, and blog content to share on related topics like working remotely, homeschooling and more.
Overview of Gale’s comprehensive online toolkit
- Resources: Interdisciplinary, curriculum-aligned resources to support online learning from pre-K through undergraduate. Please note our message on the site about sharing resources – “If you have access to these resources through your public, school, district or statewide library, please leverage those resources so you can capture the usage at the appropriate account level. If you plan to share any of the additional open resources with students, faculty, patrons or other people in your community, please let them know they may be prompted to enter with a password. The password is “open.”
- Training: Live and on-demand training materials to help partners optimize their existing resources
- Supporting Online Learning: Professional development eBooks to help those transitioning to and strengthening virtual learning
- Expert Insights: Authoritative Gale resources to support research on health-related topics and global issues
If there is anything else you can think of that would be helpful during this time, please let me know so we can explore solutions together.
