Free magazine searches for kids

An improvement in INSPIRE searching for students in grades K-5 is now available
on the INSPIRE website. The new INSPIRE Kids interface is available on the
INSPIRE database/topic search page. The new interface will replace the current
INSPIRE Kids (aka Searchasaurus) in July 2006. Until then both interfaces will
be available.

Improvements in the new interface:

- Based on the Student Research Center interface for easy transition between
interfaces

- Searches are limited to Primary Search, Newspaper Source, EBSCO Animals,
Images, and Funk & Wagnalls Encyclopedia

- All five databases are searched together in the default search

- Funk & Wagnalls and the Image database can be searched individually

- Search results returned in relevance order

- EBSCO folder allows for printing or emailing multiple articles

- Teachers and librarians can search ERIC and the Professional Development
Collection from within the interface

- Topics can be used to narrow searches or for browsing articles

- Unique INSPIRE Kids branding includes a link to the Kids Links on the INSPIRE
website
