MCPL Offers Many Wonderful Databases
March 23, 2013
Did you know that our databases are a great place to search for all kinds of scholarly information? Accessible from our website, you have 272 databases at your fingertips when you search at any branch location, and 267 of those can be accessed remotely with your library card!
If you have ever needed good sources for writing school papers, or just want to bypass a million results from a standard Google search, you may find a wealth of information available to you by first checking our Research Databases.
If you would like to avoid searching one database at a time, just click on "Cross Search Multiple Databases." This will open a search window with options for a basic or advanced search. Below that are the databases with checkboxes to choose from.
Our databases are a great way to research a health issue, so that you are better informed to discuss treatments and drugs with your doctor.
If you would like to search ONLY full text articles and bypass the frustration of pulling up an interesting title only to find it is only an abstract or leads to an option that asks you to pay for the article, you may also click “Search Full Text Online Resources” instead. Just get in there and play around! You may never rely on another lame Google search again!
