Here's what people are saying about GEM products:


On Authors 4 Teens
"I could not help but comment on this database. We subscribe to it here and it is a wonderful resource! And really inexpensive. I enjoy just browsing through it, but it is also great for students doing research on teen authors.... It is really worth a look if you have not checked it out."
- Stephanie A. Squicciarini

On American Slavery: A Composite Autobiography
"… the definitive web resource for the study of American slavery ... Highest praise goes to Greenwood Electronic Media for developing this important and affordable research milestone accessible to a wide spectrum of users."
- Library Journal

On Biographical Dictionary of American Sports: Baseball
"Greenwood Electronic Media and Greenwood Press have developed an excellent research tool for baseball enthusiasts."

On Critical Companions to Popular Contemporary Writers
"This program provides the ideal tool to push (students') thinking further…. Particularly interesting to my students are the sections on Alternative Readings. One of my students is using ideas from the religious reading of The Stand (King, 1990) for a current paper. Boolean and natural language make this tool exceptionally easy to use…. For libraries or departments where students go beyond devouring the stories of Grisham, Clancy, and Koontz, this CD would be a beneficial investment."

On Historic Events of the 20th Century

Substantial text, good web links, numerous cross references, and useful maps and photos lead to a high recommendation for this resource…."
