EBSCOhost

EBSCOhost databases provide high quality information resources for all subject areas and for a wide range of audiences. These databases unlock a wealth of published content from leading magazines, newspapers, academic journals, and reference books--these are materials that are not available on the general Web. 

Take a moment to check out EBSCOhost and you will find that there is something for everyone, whether you may benefit from the in-depth History, Science, Literary, and Biography Reference Centers, from custom content designed specifically for English Language Learners, or from up-to-date professional development resources for teachers.
