AtPellissippi State Community College(PSCC), our users have access to many Gale resources through theTennessee Electronic Library(TEL). Through our TEL setup we are able to track only statistics for PSCC users. From our statistics, we know that Gale resources are heavily used by PSCC patrons and there are a few reasons behind this success:
In Class Instruction
我们的学生主要用在课堂上向他们的资源。PSCC图书馆提供的研究指令137班今年秋季学期。PSCC馆员和师资队伍找到谁在一流的科研教学接收学生在他们的研究任务实现更高的档次。一个我们呈现给学生的教训之一就是寻找期刊文章之前查找背景资料的重要性。对立的观点在上下文is our go-to database for demonstrating background research. All the “在上下文中”数据库包含所选主题的，它提供了历史，并解释这些议题或问题的不同观点主题的网页。
Because not all of our faculty can find the time in a 5 to 16 week semester to have us in their classes, educating our faculty about our resources is the next best way to reach our students. Our faculty learn about Gale databases at our New Faculty Academy, where we introduce library resources, and at Faculty In-Service, where we demonstrate new databases or changes and new features to current databases. Librarians at PSCC are faculty and serve as subject liaisons. With this designation comes the responsibility to serve on campus academic committees and attend academic department meetings (and sometimes share after-work beers). Relationships with faculty are formed through these committees. I find that these relationships make faculty more comfortable talking with librarians about research assignments and available resources, which provides us the opportunity to recommend the most appropriate resources for their upcoming assignments (or their own research).
