5 Ways to Avoid the Summer Slide with Discus

Keep children, tweens, and teens involved in literacy this summer. Here are 5 tips:

  1. Families planning a summer trip? Have children K-12 assist in researching states using CultureGrams-States Edition. Find Quick Facts, trivia, recipes, state symbols, famous people, history, and even listen to the birdsongs of state birds.
  2. Fun songs, animated storybooks, chapter books, graphic novels, and puzzles are found in Tumblebooks, e-books for e-kids.

EBSCO's AutoMate Replaces Automotive Repair Reference Center

The Discus platform now includes AutoMate, DIY auto repair from EBSCO. Attend a live webinar about AutoMate on May 24th. AutoMate provides automotive service and repair information for over 38,000 domestic and imported vehicles from 1974 to the present. AutoMate is mobile-friendly and in it you will find:

  • technical service bulletins and recall information
  • maintenance schedules
  • component locations and wiring diagrams
  • step-by-step repair procedures
  • diagnostic trouble codes

Public and academic libraries should change web links from Automotive Repair Reference Center (ARRC) to the AutoMate resource link, as the ARRC will no longer be supported by EBSCO. Promotional items are available for school, public, and academic libraries.
