What are databases?
Your library subscribes to a number of high-quality, well-reviewed, award-winning subscription databases. These resources are part of the library collection, except that instead of being organized on shelves, they are available online. Many of these will help you with research in any topic; others are more subject-specific. All of them will supply you with pre-formatted MLA citations for each entry.
If you have questions about using any of these great resources, do not hesitate to ask Ms. Hammond or Ms. Sweeney.
