Hello all,

Although the contract for the new MeL databases doesn't officially begin until October 1, 2015, Gale has made access to Research in Context<http://www.galesupport.com/migeoipcheck/migeoipcheck-gale.php?database=MSIC> available now.  Just in time for the start of the school year, Research in Context<http://www.galesupport.com/migeoipcheck/migeoipcheck-gale.php?database=MSIC> is geared for Grades 6-8 and covers topics such as literature, science, social studies, and history from sources including National Geographic, Scholastic, and Gale.  National and state specific curriculum standards are available too.  It is found in the alphabetic listing of Databases on the MeL.org<http://mel.org/index.php?P=Home> homepage, Teens Gateway under Homework Help<http://teens.mel.org/MeLHomeworkHelp>, and Kids Gateway under Homework Helpers<http://kids.mel.org/HomeworkHelpers>.  Michigan residents or Michigan library access only.
