Sept. 2009 e-Resource of the Month: General Reference Center Gold

School has started and the homework assignments are beginning to roll in. Start your research quest with this month's e-resource -- General Reference Center Gold™. A goldmine if information, students and the casual research can access a variety of sources -- newspapers, reference books, magazines and trade publications, including full-text and images, all in one comprehensive database. General Reference Center Gold™ saves you time, as many of the encyclopedia articles also provide links to related sources outside of the current article, including other reference books, magazine and newspaper articles. General Reference Center Gold™ features a wide variety of general interest and business magazines and periodicals including:
  • Knight-Ridder/Tribune News Service Newspaper articles

  • The New York Times

  • The Wall Street Journal

  • The Christian Science Monitor

  • Children's magazines (Appleseeds, Calliope, Cricket, Weekly Reader, etc.)

  • Professional/trade journals, many in full-text (Archives of Family Medicine, Design News, Journal of Taxation, etc.)

  • More than 20 reference books

  • More than 4,500 titles including 3,500 in full text

Unlike a regular Google search, General Reference Center Gold's™ 25-year backfile is integrated and included with the library's subscription.

To access the General Reference Center Gold™ database (or any of our databases), visit the library's Web site at library.fauquiercounty.gov and click on "Search for Articles & More." You'll need a library card to access the databases from home, but if you don't have one, you can sign up online and gain immediate access.
