Databases

Databases are not the free web, they are online, advertisement-free versions of reference books, magazine articles, journal articles, audiobooks and videos which you can't find with a search engine. Forsyth School pays for several databases so that you can have easy, free, online access to reliable information you can't find on the internet.

Please remember that websites can be written by anyone and require you to look carefully and evaluate whether the information is true or not.

If you have a concern about a website you have visited please tell your parent or teacher.
