Tutorials of selected databases

The Bryant Library subscribes to over 100 Electronic Resources. These online resources are proprietary subscription databases that are not available through a search engine, but only through a subscription fee. Many of them have a print equivalent which the library owns, but some are now only available electronically. They are created by the companies who originally published our books, magazines and newspapers. These resources include books and other reference materials, as well as full-text magazine and newspaper articles.They are reference tools which are an authoritative source of verifiable information. All provide citation information when needed for the bibliography of your research paper. These resources are not generally found online, free of charge, but are available to Roslyn residents, just by entering your library card number.
When teachers say that students can’t use more than a certain number of Internet sources, they are not talking about databases. Databases are as good and as valid as if you found them in print. In fact, some of them are exactly the online versions of print products – like Britannica, World Book or Americana Encyclopedias. Except, online, you may find beautiful photos, links to relevant web resources, current events and other interactive material.
Whether you're a student, researcher or a parent, whose son or daughter is asking for homework help... Stop. Wait. Resist the temptation to go to Google. Come to the Bryant Library first – either in person, or virtually. We are available 24/7!
