State funds will give public high school students Internet access Online access to full text maga- zines/journals and to "Britannica OnLine" will be available in Delaware's 29 public high schools, thanks to a Delaware state appropriation of $210,000. Staff of the University of Delaware Library, which has ex- perience in providing online re- sources, helped develop the Statewide "Online Resources for School Libraries project, and the budget request was made through the Department of Public Instruc- tion. A full text magazines/jour- nals database meets a critical need in high schools for current materi- al on a wide array of topics that support the school curriculum and research, said Susan Brynteson, director of libraries at UD. Pur- chase of a single, statewide, mag- azine/journals license for all high schools ensures a very advanta- geous cost per school ratio. "High school students will find access to the full text of so many journals highly useful and instruc- tive," Brynteson said. 'q'he jour- nals are up to date and contain the same illustrations and text as in the print counterpart." "Brittanica Online" contains the full 44-mil- lion word text of the "Encyclope- dia Brittanica," more than 1,000 additional articles not found in the printed set, thousands of comple- mentary illustrations and graphics and hypertext links to thousands of related Internet resources. The accessibility of this wide range of material will help students to pre- pare better for college entry and to learn skills needed to work in an increasingly information-based, technological society. It will also enhance student learning by pro- viding basic and current informa- tion to assist students and teachers in their resources. IR valedictorian sets sights on Richmond Brock H.
