If your child needs to research a topic for a report, if you need reliable information not readily available in the library, or if you just have a curious mind, try the Tex-Share database. The link is on our website, and some resources are available in Spanish as well as English. The database includes Searchasaurus and EBSCI Kids Search, which present information at a reading level for younger students, EBSCO Student Research Center is great for older students, and EBSCO Academic Search Complete is a full-text database for periodicals and peer-reviewed journals. Infotrac provides access to full-text articles from newspapers around the globe. The database also includes Heritage Quest online for genealogical research and the Texas Handbook online, but these resources are only a sampling of what you can access. Come on in and use one of our fourteen public access computers—all you need is a library card.
