If you are looking for magazine or newspaper articles, try using one of the library's online databases. The library provides access to a number of licensed-only databases funded by the State of Michigan and retrievable through The Library Network. Many of these databases contain full-text articles not often indexed by search engines such as Google. You can use our databases to find popular or scholarly articles from magazines, journals, and newspapers on a wide variety of topics, for both adults and youth. Topics range from geneology to car repair to world history and many more. Click on the button, "The Databases,"on the left-hand side to get started.
Online database articles from magazines such as Newsweek, Time, The New York Times, etc. are digitized versions of the magazine or newspaper and are considered a print reference when teachers require printed sources for homework assignments.
Click on Homework Help for librarian-recommended web sites suitable for youth assignmets or on Electonic Resources for databases for youth.
For ancestry research, the library has a paid subscription to Ancestry Library that supplements the State of Michigan's Heritage Quest.
