Did you know that the library subscribes to resources that can help you finish your papers and projects quickly and accurately? There are lots of ways you can access homework help from your home computer.

For biographical information, timelines, atlases, country comparisons and general research, go to Encyclopedia Britannica. You can even make your own custom charts to compare information. Log in with your 14-digit library card number.

For newspaper, magazine and journal articles for research papers, try the Ebsco Student Research Center. Log in with your 14-digit library card number.

If you have to write a paper about a social issue, like abortion, cloning, global warming, or another controversial issue, SIRS Knowledge Source is perfect for you. Log in with your 14-digit library card number.

Are you taking driver’s ed? Can’t wait to get your permit or your license? Check out Driving-Tests.org! The library has partnered with this site to offer free DMV practice tests to library patrons. Take free practice tests, written specifically based on Illinois DMV materials. Try it before you take the real test!

Of course, that’s just the beginning of what these sites can do. The library also has links to other great resources, so visit our Research and Databases page to get started.

If you have a great research tool you use at school that you think I should know about, let me know!
