databases

Databases are online collections of reliable, academic sources that we pay for you to have access to! When you search the collections, the databases have built-in tools that allow you to filter sources by type, dates, and reading level. Many databases are available in multiple languages and they will also generate citations for you so you can easily credit your sources.
