Databases vs. Web Sites

A database contains information from encyclopedias, dictionaries, magazines, newspapers, reference books and other sources. You can search a database to find information you need. Web sites can be created by anybody and while some websites have great information, some websites may contain information that is not accurate. On this page, our library staff has selected some of the best websites we know about to help you find what you're looking for. We've also highlighted some great databases (you can find more databases on our Teen page).

If you see a Database icon, that means the source is a library database, and to use it from home, you'll need your library card and password.
