We talked about databases in our orientation classes but here is a reminder – use the databases for your projects and research assignments!  They are so simple to use and you know that your information is coming from a great source.

You can get to the databases by logging into your Portal account.  Click on My Resources tab and voilà, you are there.

What databases do we have???

Britanica Encyclopedia

You can search by Elementary, Middle or High School.  WWJR students should choose the Middle school option.   There are lots of great options – how to do a research paper, write a book review, create a science report, as well as search for information.
