Library Research Tools
The Saint Thomas Aquinas Catholic School Library promotes the use of databases and online encyclopedias for research and projects. From the youngest to the oldest, we strive to teach good research skills and the ability to discern quality scholary resources from those that are not. Students are requested to sign up for their town or city's local public library card, as the state databases are accessed via ownership of a public library card, when used from home.
Access our online World Book Encyclopedia or Gale Databases with the below links, from school instantly. If you are accessing from home, you need the login and password. Mrs. Wilson has put all passwords in the Library Google Classroom:
CT State Databases for Grades 3-5 (access from school instantly, need town library card to access from home)
CT State Databases for Middle School (access from school instantly, need town library card to access from home)
