Tools for Research

Online research databases are an important part of our collection because they are curated, fact-checked collections of information at an appropriate level for our students. Students are introduced to them starting with pictorial browsing in kindergarten and keyword searching in second grade. 

Students are encouraged to access our online databases using the LMTC Clever page.  For help logging in or using these resources, please contact Ms. Phelps.
