New Content in Kids InfoBits

title_kidsinfobitsGale/Cengage reports that new content has been added to the Kids InfoBits resource. Kids InfoBits is provided statewide as part of El Portal. El Portal resources are funded by grant money from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) admistered by the State of New Mexico through the New Mexico State Library, a division of the Department of Cultural Affairs.

We’re happy biographies were added, since some librarians requested addition of youth-appropriate biography resource in El Portal. We got quotes, but did not have the funds to add one this year. This is a small step in the right direction, though.

A total of 240 author biographies and 197 images from the Kids InfoBits Presents: Authors title now appear in Kids InfoBits.  Biographies written at both the K-2 and K-5 content levels for the following popular authors are now included:
