Gale recently added interactive maps to their collection of resources in the 6th – 12th grade database Student Resources in Context. The maps allow users to view statistical information on various topics which then leads users to more information about the topic including academic journals, reference and primary sources, and multimedia content. This 30 minute session will highlight ways to view and use the information, access to more content, and what information is used to create the maps.
