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
- Career choices
- 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.
