Please pardon the cross-posting.

In the recent announcement about Opposing Viewpoints, I mentioned that Gale would be updating it to a new interface this summer.  Gale has decided to move all K12 Resource Center products to that interface at the same time instead of staggering the transition.  To find out which products are affected, to preview the new interface, and to view an FAQ section, read the Gale email below.

If you have plain text email and can't open the links mentioned in Gale's announcement, this link will get you to the same page:      http://www.gale.cengage.com/NewRCs/index.htm?grid=10K12038.  Use the navigation in the column on the left to explore.

Notice that starting in June there will be webinars to train folks on the new interface.
http://www.gale.cengage.com/NewRCs/faq.htm: FAQ / About the Transition / Will there be Webinars so I can learn more?

Just to clarify, the webinars mentioned in the FAQ are offered by Gale on the national level.  They are free and you have to register through their training calendar.  We will also offer multiple webinar sessions for Oregon users in June, August, and late September or early October.  Stay tuned to the listservs for more info about that.  That means you'll have lots of opportunities to learn the new interface.

Ready to explore now?  Click on Watch an Overview in the left column of the New Resource Center site<http://www.gale.cengage.com/NewRCs/index.htm?grid=10K12038>.  I'm not sure why you have to give your name and email, but it's through Gale, so they won't spam you but might contact you directly in the near future about updates to the interface.
