MVHS Library Databases


Mount Vernon High School


We have something for everyone!

  • Recreational Reading—Use Destiny to find great books and lots of them! Hint: Use the "Website" tab after you submit your search to get vetted websites on just about every topic you search for.

  • ResearchInformation is just a few clicks away whether you are at school or at home.

Destiny: This is the MVHS library catalog search--but it's much more than that! Use it to search for books, websites and database (One Search) results. Create an account and save lists of resources for future use and to make creating a bibliography a snap.

The following databases also can be accessed through MVHS My Products page:

  1. Gale database links: This link takes you to all of the Gale databases available at Mount Vernon High School. If prompted for a password and you are unsure what it is, contact Mr. Sadzewicz or Ms. Anderson in the library.

  2. Opposing Viewpoints: This database works well for social studies CBAs. It encompasses many topics around which people have opinions.

  3. Global Issues in Context: This database also works well with social studies CBAs. It gives a perspective on many topics of the day from countries around the world.

  4. World Book Online: Once you've logged in, look in the first column titled "World Book Web" at the top and select "World Book Advanced." This is the high school version of the resource. "World Book Student" is also a good option.

Creating a bibliography citation can be done relatively easily when you gather the needed information yourself and put it into a template site. Give one of these a try:

*KnightCite: Take the citation information you have and fill in a form to creat a MLA style citation.

*Purdue OWL MLA style guide

There are also some sites that will create the citation from a book title or web address. I recommend

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) websites:

1. National Science Digital Library: This site includes a wide variety of text and multimedia resources for teachers and students.

2. STEM Coalition: An organization promoting STEM activities.
