UEN Staff Picks

Pioneer Library Activities - New
We all know that Pioneer Online Library is an invaluable resource, but unfortunately not everyone does. In hopes of raising awareness, UEN worked with experienced educators to gather short classroom activities that utilize one or more of the Pioneer Library products. Please spread the word and submit your ideas.
Research In Context
Coming soon to Pioneer Online Library
Gale will be launching a new middle school product called Research In Context at the end of May. This resource is designed to support the developing information and digital literacy skills of 6 - 8 grade students. Note: This product will eventually replace Discovering Collection, InfoTrac Junior Edition and Student Resource Center Jr.

Prevent Summer Set-Back
Keep Children Reading All Summer Long
UEN collected these resources and activities for you to share with students and parents. Also, encourage everyone to contact their local public library for more information about their Summer Reading Programs.
New Password
On August 3, 2015 the password for Pioneer Online Library Home Access will change. Discover the new password by visiting from a school computer or by calling (800) 866-5852 or contact us. Please share this information with Utah students, but do not post it on a public website.
