Library databases provide access to scholarly/peer-reviewed resources across a wide spectrum of topic and subject areas. They provide access to published information sources. Examples: magazines, newspapers, encyclopedias, journals and other resources. The library databases also provide citation information.
Full Text = entire article - Library databases sometimes omit photos, graphs, charts, and figures from articles, but most will indicate that these have been omitted.
Abstract = summary provided by the author or database publisher.
Several of the library's databases are provided by Discus. Access these databases 24/7 to find information, magazine and newspaper articles, and reference books. You can browse the databases by grade level or subject matter to find the database that is right for you. Click on the logo below to go to the Discus website.
Discus is a service of the South Carolina State Library and is funded by an appropriation from the South Carolina General Assembly through the K-12 School Technology Initiative, and the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services.
