Use online homework tools

Databases provide digital access to print articles and information from sources such as magazines, newspapers, journals, and reference resources like encyclopedias.

Databases provide quality, reliable information for research, and may include other resources such as images, maps, videos, biographical information, and science project ideas.

The most popular databases by grade are listed below. For additional resources, ​visit the A to Z list of all online resources page.

​Chat with a librarian @Answerland

Answerl​and staff will try to help you find resources that help with your project. The first time you use Answerland, it should be to find out what, who, or when. Librarians will direct you to resources, but will not be able to answer specific questions. 

Remember, you are chatting with a live librarian who may be busy chatting with other people too. Please be courteous and patient with the librarians.
