Through October 31, 2015, OhioNET libraries can now receive discounted pricing for a variety of Careers & College Test Prep resources from Gale – Cengage Learning, including:

• Testing & Education Resource Center
• Career Transitions Database
• Gale Virtual Reference Library – Specialized Career & Test Prep Titles

Career Transitions

A comprehensive career resource that allows you to search for and track jobs, create targeted resumes and cover letters, practice and master interview techniques, explore and identify career paths according to your interests, experience what's in demand, and find schools and education/training programs. Career Transitions is your one-stop-shop for finding a new job/career or for finding expert tips on how to set yourself apart in an increasingly competitive job market.

Gale Virtual Reference Library

Gale Virtual Reference Library is a database of encyclopedias and specialized reference sources for multidisciplinary research. These reference materials once were accessible only in the library, but now you can access them online from the library or remotely 24/7. Because each library creates its own eBook collection, the content you see may vary if you use the database at different libraries (your school, your public library, or your office).

Testing & Education Reference Center

Taking a college entrance or licensing exam? Looking for a college or graduate school? Need help finding scholarships? Use this database to search thousands of college and graduate school entries. Identify scholarships that meet their financial needs. Take on-line practice tests and use test prep eBooks to obtain your education goals.

Interested parties can access a free trial for all three resources here:  http://galesupport.com/trial/ohionet
