    A database is a sevice that provides access to a large amount of information.  Because the information has been written and compiled by experts, it is much better to use for school assignments than Google.  Databases can only be used with subscriptions.  Because of this, they often have user names and passwords.  The links below are the databases that SRA subscribes to.  There are also links to the databases available through the New York Public Library.  Make sure you enter the necessary user name and password.
