How to Use the Library Databases is Growing!

book_stack_mouse_2012_za1I have added more database vendors to the Hot Topic – How to Use the Library Databases along with scavenger hunts, search tips sheets you can download and more. A new page has been added called “What is a Database?”. This page not only explains what a database is but also provides information on why you should use a database and tips for getting started with a research or report.

You will also notice a new search tool available for Gale databases called Research In Context. Research in Context will search across GALE homework databases and eBooks (GVRL) so it is designed for grades K-12. Prior to school starting we will be adding it to the Homework Help pages as well.

Please keep checking back as I still have additional vendors to add to this Hot Topic. If you have any suggestions for this page, please let me know.
