Gale Literary Resources replaces Artemis and includes Litfinder.  All TexQuest Artemis users have been automatically redirected to Gale Literary Resources, the newest offering from Gale which gives simultaneous access to all resources in Scribners Writers, Twains Authors, the Literature Resources Center, and all GVRL literature reference books. In addition, TexQuest patrons can now access Gale's Litfinder to search for full text poems, short stories, speeches, plays, and novels. Continue here for more information and a link to a training video.
All TexQuest provider icons/images and direct links are now available in one handy place. Providing easy access to appropriate TexQuest resources for your district, school, or class is the quickest way to increase TexQuest usage. The TexQuest Support Center has collected the images/icons for all resources available from each TexQuest provider, as well as the direct links to access those resources, on one page. Use the images and links on this page to direct your students to appropriate resources from your school and library webpages. Share them with your teachers to include on their webpages, in learning management systems, or in assignments. TexQuest can be accessed from anywhere - and you can point users to the best resource in many creative ways. Continue here for TexQuest's new Images and Direct Link Page.
