Recommended Databases

  • Databases gather information.  You can find databases that specialize in science or literature or art or anything else.  

    I have listed some databases that may be useful to you:


    1.  The Library of Congress is located in Washington, D.C. and is used by Senators, Congressmen, and Congresswomen.  Anyone in the world is able to access it online or go to use in person. Click on this link to find amazing and interesting information. 
    Look through these resources for your research:

    Examples of what is there:


    2. Another Library of Congress source is Poetry 180 :


    3.  NC WiseOwl is filled with  hundreds of databases that are free.  Look for more infomation on the Library Media Center webpage.  At school you can access this site without a password.   You can also use these databases anywhere you have free wi-fi but you will need to use the password. 

    My favorites are : Explora,

                               : Britannica School,

                               and Student Resources in Context.
