August 2009 eResource of the Month: Gale Directory Library

Fauquier County Public Library recently added the Gale Directory Library to its collection. The Directory Library, which includes include the American Wholesalers and Distributors Directory, Consultants and Consulting Organizations Directory, Encyclopedia of Associations: National Organizations and Scholarships, Fellowships & Loans, allows you to search for directory entries in a variety of ways, as well as giving you quick and easy digital ways to view, store and export the data you find. Previously FCPL patrons could only access the data in the print versions of these resources, requiring a trip to the library. Now you can search a single eDirectory or across an entire collection of eDirectories.

Key Benefits of the Gale Directory Library include:
  • Search 24/7 from any Internet-connected computer

  • Sort and export data to analyze or generate mailing lists

  • Print, e-mail or download individual entries

  • Perform further research through hot-linked Web sites and e-mail addresses

  • Generate custom results from marked items lists

  • Access historical data through available backfiles

The Directory Library is available 24/7 from any Internet-connected computer -- only your Fauquier County Public Library card is required.
