We are excited to present four new UDLib/SEARCH trial databases: Capstone Interactive, PebbleGo Next, PebbleGo Read More, and World Book Early Learning! Access to all four database collections can be found on the UDLib/SEARCH Trial Databases Page.
Capstone Interactive is a collection of more than 3,000 ebooks. The books include fiction and nonfiction. They cover all subjects and all grade levels. The heaviest concentration of titles is for elementary school. Middle school coverage is moderate, and there is a small segment of content for reluctant high school readers. Books can be read offline using an iTunes app. (Trial Period: 2/17/20 – 6/15/20)
PebbleGo Next provides 3rd – 5th grade students with content designed for their specific needs. PebbleGo Next includes an array of topics: Biographies, Science, Social Studies, State Studies, and American Indian History. These databases engage upper elementary students with subject matter created for and correlated to state & national curriculum standards. (Trial Period: 2/17/20 – 6/15/20)
PebbleGo Read More provides 750 new ebooks at the K – 2nd grade level. These ebooks are found within the “Read More” tab in every article in PebbleGo Animals and PebbleGo Science. (Trial Period: 2/17/20 – 6/15/20)
