Databases for Students, Grades 5-12

These online databases are sources of informational text for elementary students. With the exception of World Book all are available free through the NJ State Library and should be available in most elementary schools.

Databases for Teachers and Librarians

These online subscription databases are useful for finding children's literature. The Cheng Library will not have many of the titles listed. You may need to use your local public or school library.
