Access Science

There are promotional brochures at the desk for Access Science, one of our newest licensed databases.  You can find it in the A-Z index in GALILEO or here is a direct link:

The database has the content of the multi-volume print McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science, plus some enhancements that are possible in the digital format such as digital animations and hyperlinks to cited and supplemental material.

This license was requested by science faculty from Alpharetta as part of a grant proposal, so you might have students inquiring about it. 

Please try it out and feel free to record any comments or tips in the comments section.
