Waiting in the doctor’s office and interested in checking into that medication you are taking? Wondering what you are going to do about the report your sixth grader forgot to mention?
If you need to do some research and can’t make it to the library, We're excited to announce we can now bring the library to you – whether you are in the doctor’s office, at your kitchen table or under the hood of your car.
By taking advantage of the Gale AccessMyLibrary (AML) mobile application for the iPhone, research is as simple as an Internet search on a mobile phone. Gale, part of Cengage Learning, has developed an iPhone application that allows you to access Deschutes Public Library's Online Resources from Gale wherever you are.
The AML app finds your global position and locates libraries within a ten mile radius, giving you access to DPL's Online Resources from Gale at any time. And the favorites feature allows you to bookmark your local library so you can get to us no matter where you are.
With the free AccessMyLibrary application, the iPhone becomes a valuable research tool. AML can even be used as a way to locate other libraries that offer access to Gale online resources when you travel.
Some of DPL's Online Resources from Gale that you access from your iPhone:
- Biography Resource Center
- Small Business Resource Center
- Gale Virtual Reference Library
- Student Resource Center
- General OneFile (Magazines and Journals)
