What are databases? Collections of previously published resources– books, essays, news articles, magazines, etc– organized to allow you to quickly and easily search thousands of electronic sources at once. They’re nothing short of miraculous. Navigation can initially be a bit tricky, so always come see me, Ms. McNerney, in the library if you need a research partner-in-crime.

Some of our databases require a password for access. Find a complete list of e-resources and login passwords in the link below. Forgotten the password to open the password list? Come see me in the library or email me: Click here for a video tutorial of the passwords page.
