Reference Databases

The following reference databases are among the most useful for homework research: 


·  Student Resources in Context provides articles (many full-text) from reference books, magazine, academic journal, and  

   newspapers in a variety of subject areas. This database also includes images and primary sources.

·   America's News Magazines provides full-text magazine articles about news, business, entertainment, science and technology,

   lifestyle, and sports.

   guides, author read-alikes, lists of award winners, series information, and various ways to search for books. 


How to log in to reference databases


These databases are available within the Library on the Library’s computers, and from outside the Library to Batavia Public Library cardholders who may access the databases by logging in with their library card number and PIN. If you are logging in from outside the Library, after you click on the name of the database you would like to search:


In the "Library Card Number" box, type the barcode number located on the back of your Batavia Public Library card, without the spaces. In the "PIN" box, type your PIN. (Unless you have changed your PIN, it is the word changeme).
