The mission of the Virtual Learning Resources Center is to index
thousands of the best academic information websites, selected by
teachers and library professionals worldwide, in order to provide to
students and teachers current, valid information for school and
university academic projects!
From the LIFE of FL Yahoo Group:
The Virtual LRC is both a dedicated index of over 10,000 web pages
maintained by a real human being, as well as a meta-search engine
that includes in its results information gleaned from many of the
best research portals and university and public library Internet
subject guides recommended by teachers and librarians.
The VLRC includes selected sites in a growing list of
subject/information areas including: full-text magazines, newspapers,
electronic text archives, art history, biography, biology, career
information, psychology, history, government information, literature,
medical information, social sciences, legal information, American
Civil War, Art, Careers, Crime, Directories, Economics, Education,
English Language, Electronic Texts, Foreign Languages, Geography,
Genealogy, Government Information,Health/Medical, History, Legal
Information, Lesson Plans, Literature, Mathematics, Music, Reference,
Science, Technology, Tutorials on the Web, and Writing Style Guides.
A special search tools page includes forms to search online
magazines, photos and clipart, sounds, and study guides.
The Virtual LRC, a completely free, non-commercial resource, is the
creation of Dr. Michael Bell, former state chair of the Texas
Association of School Librarians. The Virtual LRC is in a constant
state of revision. Please sign our guest book featured on the main
page, and feel free to recommend specific additions to the site, or
more general improvements that you feel would help make the VLRC even
more facilitative of student information needs.
