Academic Databases
Ebooks

Gale Virtual Resource Library is where UHS library's Research Ebooks are located. As many of the research titles and topics are updated at UHS, students have found more power in having these types of titles in ebooks rather than traditional print. All books in the GVRL database are real books that have paperbound counterparts.

The power of the Ebooks when it comes to research lies in that students do not need to check them out. They are available to students at home and available to multiple students at a time. The Ebooks are also using the same platform as the academic databases do so all of the tools available through GALE are available with the ebooks.

  • Easy conversion to GoogleDocs being saved in the students Drive
  • The notes feature that also converts to a GoogleDoc in the student's Drive
  • Integration with Easybib for quick and complete Citations
  • Ebooks are searchable off of every word within the book rather than the just the topics designated by the publisher
