Database Trials

This guide will be used to provide access to the Faculty to trial new databases!

 

We appreciate you taking the time out of your busy schedules to try out new resources and provide feedback. If you are interested in setting up a trial, please contact Amber Spratlin, Electronic Resources Librarian, aspratlin@lagrange.edu or 706-880-8962.

GALE Interactive: Human Anatomy

Trial Dates: August 14, 2019 -  September 14, 2019

Gale Interactive: Human Anatomy provides an interactive learning resource that can be incorporated into your existing classes, or be used as a supplemental library resource. 

Here is the link to the Gale Interactive: Human Anatomy

I recommend looking at two sessions in particular that demonstrate the capabilities of Human Anatomy:

 

  • Layers of the Eye – make sure to pull apart the model of the eye while in the session (drag and drop).

 

  • Pelvic Walls and Floor – you can grab the model and rotate it around while holding the right mouse key. 

 

You can also view our on-demand training videos on how the databases work through this link; scroll down to the Gale Interactive choices.  With 125 sessions covering all systems (skeletal, muscular, nervous, circulatory, digestive, respiratory, urinary, and reproductive) and all regions (upper limb, thorax, abdomen, head and neck, lower limb, and pelvis), Human Anatomy is a unique visual spatial learning product that offers students, faculty, and academic librarians a new way to learn, teach and provide reference about human anatomy.   The database also provides quizzing after each session, very popular now with students as a learning tool! 

 

Gale Interactive: Science

Trial Dates: August 14, 2019 - September 14, 2019

Gale Interactive: Science

Here is the link to the Gale Interactive: Science

Imagine what it could be like for your students to face complex science concepts with more knowledge and less uncertainty. Gale Interactive: Science can do that, plus more. By taking science from flat text to a more interactive space by way of 3D models, students can zoom in, rotate, and pull apart models to take a closer look. Over 200 interactive sessions, correlated to Next Generation Science Standards, are available covering biology, chemistry, and earth science. The program’s easy-to-use, intuitive interface facilitates in-depth learning by including relevant reference and periodical content and a short assessment at the end of each session.

Gale Interactive: Chemistry

Trial Dates: August 14, 2019 - September 14, 2019

Gale Interactive: Chemistry

Here is the link to the Gale Interactive: Chemistry

Users can manipulate and explore 3D interactive models, allowing students to visualize and understand concepts in biology, chemistry, earth and space science. Reference and periodical content provide additional context for further understanding.
