Yesterday, my friend Jim Ulsh at ProQuest shared the new widgets for the ProQuest K12 products. At this point, you can grab search widgets for eLibrary and CultureGrams (World Edition Map Widget). SIRS widgets are coming soon. The widget builder offers a pull-down menu to help you build a customized search box based on learner or project demands.
While I was in the ProQuest neighborhood, I stumbled upon all sorts of new videos, posters, training tools, lessons and more on their Training and Support and Librarian Spot pages. Well worth a visit!
But back to widgets. Here’s the list of database widgets I’ve collected so far on my my favorite widgets page:
- EBSCO Searchbox Builder
- Gale Widgets
- Gale Publication Search Widget
- Facts on File Widgets
- Alternate Facts on File Widgets (works better on wikis and blogs)>
- ProQuest Search Widget Creator
- ProQuest K12 Widgets
- JSTOR Search
