Surpass Software now offers selected records from MARC Junction Web Collections to all librarians and educators through Web Tracks, a free E-newsletter.
Each month Surpass Software chooses Web sites from MARC Junction Web Collections for Web Tracks. Teachers, librarians, and anyone interested in handpicked, expert-reviewed web sites may subscribe at www.MARCjunction.com/tracks.htm.
Each newsletter spotlights a curriculum-based topic found in MARC Junction Web Collections. All sites have been meticulously reviewed by librarians, educators and subject area specialists. Usually available only to subscribers, MARC Junction offers collections of pre-selected, fully annotated Web sites available as MARC records that integrate into a library's automated card catalog.
MARC Junction Web Tracks brings subscribers a sample set of these expert-reviewed Web sites at no charge each month. The newsletter provides a summary of useful content on each site and indicates the suggested audience for the site. Topics range from curriculum-based subjects areas to insight on current events.
Subscribers to MARC Junction Web Tracks may freely distribute the Web site information within their facility. Librarians, teachers, counselors and students will all find the topics useful in their teaching and research.
When search engines are the only tools available, researching Web sites can be a cumbersome, lengthy process. Having a subscription to MARC Junction is like having your own staff of researchers. MARC Junction has already done the work on hundreds of topics, finding only the best Web resources. For more information on MARC Junction Web Collections Subscriptions, visit www.MARCjunction.com.
MARC Junction is distributed in cooperation with Rockhill Communications by Surpass Software, producers of library automation software and Surpass Copycat, a new tool for downloading free MARC records.
