The new Britannica School interfaces went live in July!
This new platform has been developed for Britannica School resources. Therefore, if your school media center uses Britannica you will want to obtain a copy of the following updated links to access K-12 databases;
- Elementary School
- Middle School
- High School
- Learning Zone
Other points of interest:
- Previous links will only be redirected until December 2013.
- In the months to come, Minitex Reference Outreach & Instruction plans on offering webinars.
- Users of Britannica’s Public Library Edition and Academic Edition are not affected by this change.
- There is a new lesson plan builder feature in Britannica School.
A recent article in Reference Notes (September 2013) written by Beth Staats, discusses the new Lesson Plan Builder tool. Staats states the following,
“One of the new features, specifically for teachers, is the Lesson Plan Builder. It is available in My Britannica, which is a tool that allows you to save and share content . You’ll need to create a free account to access it and use the Teacher Code KMVL when setting up your account . Once I logged in with the teacher code, I was shown a page that introduced me to the features available in My Britannica . This tool lets you save and organize favorites and create descriptive tags for those items; lets you search for interactive lessons, study guides, and lesson plans; and lets you create lesson plans.”
