Access My Library!

Have you heard of this FREE iPhone application (AccessMyLibrary) from Gale/Cengage Learning?  I just heard about this yesterday and had to check it out.  AccessMyLibrary uses your global position (GPS) to locate public libraries within a 10-mile radius of your location.   You will then have access to all of the Gale online resources available at that public library . . .  your iPhone becomes a valuable research tool (with access to credible and reliable resources).  You will have access to:

  • Health care
  • Environment
  • Biographies
  • Career choices
  • Literature
  • Science . . . and,
  • Hundreds of sources for home, school or business.

Not too shabby!  I tested it out . . . unfortunately, I was not within a 10-mile radius of a public library that subscribes to any Gale products, but the application pulled up a Google map of my location with a note telling me that no libraries were found.
