Good Reading Online is here!!!!!

Posted on June 17, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , |

We are now subscribing to Good Reading Online. GRO is an Australian resource with information on ‘Everything About Books’ including thousands of easy to read independent book reviews and lots of Australian and International articles, author profiles, stories on writers’ houses, bookshops, short stories, book trivia and more. It also aims to provide not only a central place for book lovers to find useful information, but also a place for readers (and writers) to exchange thoughts and ideas.

The online edition is an exact digital copy of the print magazine (which we still subscribe to) with the benefits of access to the archive of past issues plus links to interesting websites and more. You’ll also be able to browse and keyword search through all issues.

Good Reading will provide us with promotional material and tutorials and we will promote this new resource to the public. In the mean time, please familiarise yourselves with this new exciting resource. It is accessible from all PCs in the libraries (no password required) and from your home PC using your library card barcode to enter. You will find it in the Online Databases section of the library website.
