In addition, there are high-quality analytical sources such as American Jurisprudence 2nd (Am Jur 2d), the American Law Reports (ALR), and over 700 law reviews and journals.

News formats consist of newspapers, magazines, newswire reports, transcripts of TV and radio programs, and international sources, including an extensive collection of foreign language publications.

All this is available through a sophisticated but easy-to-use interface. Two things to be aware of: 1) users must approve the license agreement every time they log in and 2) pop-up blockers should be disabled.

Classical Music Library is the world's largest multi-label database of Classical music recordings for listening and learning in libraries. Coverage of repertoire is increasing as new labels are added (currently over 32 labels), with a particular focus on content that meets the needs of educators and students. The collection of 50,000-plus tracks is supplemented by reference materials and backed by a suite of tools designed to support learning.

Smithsonian Global Sound for Libraries, produced in partnership with Smithsonian Folkways Recordings, includes the published recordings owned by the non-profit Smithsonian Folkways Recordings label and the archival audio collections of the legendary Folkways Records, Cook, Dyer-Bennet, Fast Folk, Monitor, Paredon and other labels, as well as music collected by recordists internationally.

The collection contains approximately 16,000 tracks from a diverse range of genres such as jazz, blues, gospel, ragtime, folk songs, and narratives, among others. Additional tracks and labels are added to the database regularly.
