 Virtual Reference Library (GVRL) has introduced a new feature that offers users the ability to read full books in PDF format online. The book-like online reading experience is prevalent across popular reading platforms, and users now expect the same in research
 eBooks. This new online browsing functionality allows users to interact dynamically with and page through the PDF format. Historically, users could only navigate through a title in the HTML (rich text) format or static PDF pages. The new format combines the
 readability of print with all the tools that GVRL brings, including the online ability to search and navigate quickly,

 user’s need to resize, pan or scroll while reading and navigating. Using responsive design technology, Gale’s mobile interface automatically displays when users access any InfoTrac resource from their smartphone, whether they click into these resources directly

 Teen Readers’ Advisory. Sessions are presented by highly skilled, experienced Youth Services Librarians in Oregon. Presenters are typically active members of the Oregon Library Association's
