PALS is adding the LearningExpress Library to its list of Digital Sets available to be loaded into MnPALS Plus and PALSdiscover library catalogs at no cost to our libraries.
LearningExpress is an acclaimed provider of online platforms for academic skill-building, standardized test preparation and career-oriented digital content. LearningExpress features interactive online platforms, products and e-books designed to help users achieve their educational and career goals.
The LearningExpress Library™ features practice tests, complete answer explanations and prescriptive tutorials in unique instructional designs that support the education needs of entire communities through public libraries. Learning Express Library also features resources for elementary through high school plus college and professional career preparation levels.
ELM (Electronic Library of Minnesota) added The LearningExpress Library to its roster of databases available to all Minnesota Libraries in July 2014.
PALS loads complete sets of records for digital resources into MnPALS Plus and PALSdiscover. We provide unique URLs for each library as needed for authentication, adding proxy strings and account information as required. These record sets are kept up-to-date by PALS and will not be loaded into Aleph unless needed for inclusion in commercial discovery systems.
Digital Sets we are currently loading at a cost of $300 annually for each record set:
Films on Demand
Alexander Street Press
EBSCO Academic eBook Collection
We also have digital sets that we will load for you at no charge
MN Legislators: Past and Present
EBSCO Ebooks (NetLibrary books purchased for MN libraries by Minitex)
PALS may also load other record sets upon request. Contact the PALS Office for further information.
