Article reports on an announcement made by Belize's Minister of Education Hon. Patrick Faber and Chief Librarian for the Belize National Library Service, Joy Ysaguirre, about the national access for students at all levels of education to over 20, 000 e-resources accessible from their home. Access will be provided through the National Library of Belize, who will supply the password to those patrons interested. The proprietary e-library vendor behind the provision of these electronic resources is named, as well a brief profile on the company and its services.


Students all across Belize now have free access to more than  20,000 online publications, because  the Government of Belize has added EBSCO Publishing’s extensive e-library program to the list of  educational resources available to students.

The program will grant students of all academic levels access to a database comprised of thousands of full text publications including journals, magazines, newspapers and more.
