Databases

Databases are online subscription sites available to us because of our membership in the Massachusetts Library System. They offer articles from print sources, as well as web-sites and multimedia. Perfect for supporting the Common Core and multimodal literacy! We have access to a wide variety of databases with special subject specializations to support all levels of learning in all content areas!
