The resources described below will be available at no cost to libraries through September 15 using this link: http://gale.com/eclipse-in-context-owners
Note that Science In Context is currently not part of Oregon's regular subscription, so this is a unique opportunity to explore this resource.

While a total solar eclipse hasn't occurred in nearly a century-providing research content around topics of great interest is something libraries do every day. As a subscriber to Gale resources such as Science In Context, Student Resources In Context, and Research In Context, your researchers have rich and newly updated information about the 2017 Solar Eclipse at their fingertips.

Libraries across the nation are playing a key role in supporting people of all ages looking to understand and observe the exciting phenomenon occurring in the U.S. on August 21st. Here are a few tips as you prepare to participate in this rare event through engaging activities and events.

  *   Share the Eclipse topic overview page using the persistent URL created using the bookmark feature in your resource
  *   Direct researchers to the activities, videos, and other engaging content to help them better understand the celestial event of the century
  *   If you're one of the thousands of libraries hosting events or distributing glasses, use content from your resource to support your programs
