    Citation Resolutions

    Resolute to citing all sources?   Many library eCollections will self-cite.  Look for buttons that read ‘cite’ or ‘cite now.’   Products from the Gale company will even import the citation into your Google Drive.  Level up!     “Research Methods – Citation Pop-Up.” Gale Virtual Reference Library.

    What DOES the fox say?

    What does the fox say?   Within the Library’s Gale Virtual Reference collection is one of the most-famed zoology encyclopedias: the 17-volume Grzimek’s Animal Life Encyclopedia.   According to the Grzimek’s article about the fox it really depends on what is going on in the fox’s life, but my take is, he howls and barks and of course “squeaks, grunts and growls.”   Wondering what on earth I’m going on about?  This viral video inspired today’s research blog post.  🙂
