Library Databases

Library subscription databases will take you to academic information on your Enlightenment Thinker.  On the  Library Homepage you can browse the databases to find the ones that are most relevant to searching for biographical and historical information.  For example, you will find useful articles from academic journals in the following.  Remember that if you are accessing these databases from home you may need a password which you will also find on the Library Homepage along with the link to the database. In addition to our databases, we also have access to the History Today archives.  Though not a database the archives store excellent scholarly articles from the History today magazine.
