Books Use the library catalog to search for books in the library. Mrs. St. Laurent can order additional books and articles from other libraries in the area!
General Onefile A good periodicals database for general information. You will find magazine articles, journal articles, newspapers and media. You may find literary criticism here, but this may also be a good source for historical context.
Grolier This is an online encyclopedia. Use this primarily for broad background information.
The Digital Public Library of America This site connects the primary source collections of thousands of libraries and museums from across the country. You may find documents, photos and other artifacts.
When using information from a database, the site will usually provide a citation. Look for a link that says something like "Cite This" or "Citation Information" near the top. If you don't see that, scroll down to the bottom of the page and look there. Double check these citations for accuracy.
