Kids InfoBits is a Gale database specifically designed for students in grades K thru 5. The Kids InfoBits interface has been redesigned, and Oregon libraries will upgrade in early May. After the switch, links to Kids InfoBits on your website and on OSLIS<http://elementary.oslis.org/find-information> will lead to the new version. While users can still drill down by topic or search by keywords to find information, the new interface is more modern and includes more features, like the ability to translate articles into 12 different languages. For those who want to preview, learn about, or promote the new Kids InfoBits, there are many resources.
