We have recently added the New Orleans Advocate newspaper and Times-Picayune web-only content to our America’s News subscription. The New Orleans Advocate articles are often unique and don’t always appear in the Baton Rouge Advocate, which was always included in our America’s News subscription. Give it a try to locate more local information!

The Monroe Library added the Learning Express Library during the summer of 2008. It’s not a database of books or articles, but a service with lots of practice tests and ebooks for improving performance on academic and professional tests. Includes practice exams for GMAT, GRE, LSAT, MCAT, and TOEFL. Also mathematics, reading, and other skill improvement tutorials. This service requires registration. Ask questions at the Learning Commons Desk in person or by telephone at 504-864-7111.
During the summer of 2008 we were able to add the World Book Online family to our research databases. This service has browsable and searchable full text of the World Book encyclopedia. It includes a dictionary, an atlas and special features, like Explore Louisiana. Links at the bottom of the page to World Book Discover (for secondary school students), Online Reference Center, World Book Kids, and the Spanish and French World Books.
