WHY USE RESEARCH DATABASES?
A database is simply a searchable collection of information. A library database offers a reliable and efficient way to search a vast number of articles.
Online subscription databases contain the most comprehensive, the most up-to-date, and the most trustworthy sources of information. We strongly recommend using our databases when doing research, rather than surfing the Internet for information.
All of these databases are free and are accessible from remote locations.
Please visit the school library for assistance with accessing and/or navigating these databases. Passwords are available from the librarians.
