Strive to be a Critical Thinker, a Skillful Researcher and an Ethical User of Information!

Why Use a Database?

Databases are powerful resources for collecting primary sources for your research throughout the curriculum, while the Web provides free access to what companies and people have made available to the public. Remember, anyone can create a web page, whether they are a subject expert or not, and the information you find may be incorrect or subjective. Using a database will not only save you time, but it will also provide you with accurate, reliable information that you can trust. 

Other Perks:

Quiet Lounge: The Learning Commons is a busy space that supports all learning including collaboration, exploration, and creativity (which can be noisy)! If you would like a quiet atmosphere, the Learning Commons has a room designated as a silent space to study, read, or relax before, during, and after school.  This room is also periodically used as a classroom and for after school co-curricular meetings. Please check the calendar for availability.
