Jeffco Public Library Databases

Ms.Kurach's Biographical Sketch assignment requires a lot of research and gathering of information.  To do this, we are going to use the Jeffco Public Library Databases.  These databases are reliable and credible sources of information.  To use these databases, all you need is a Jeffco Public Library card.  For this assignment, we are going to use the databases Gale Biography in Context and Middle Search Plus.

Ebooks are also a great option.  At KCMS, we own the Encyclopedia of World Biography ebook.  Please note that the publication date is 2004, which may be limiting for some research topics.
