About Academic Databases
Electronic databases should be your first step in online research. These are password protected informational resources our school subscribes to for research purposes. Generously funded by the Booster Club, the information is hand-selected, evaluated, standardized, authenticated, and RELIABLE.
Colleges expect their incoming students to be able to use electronic databases instead of the free Web (i.e. Google, Wikipedia, etc.)
PVHS encourages students to use more reliable sources of information in preparation for college research and broader information literacy. The content from databases is accurate, current, and relevant.

There's an app for that!
Gale (one of many database companies) makes a free app to help users access their products without needing a public library card.
Gale's "Access My Library" app allows users to access any Gale databases or ebooks owned by a public library within 50 miles of user's location. > Find articles and save the bookmark permalinks to return to the articles.
