The DHS library has subscriptions to two academic databases. If you use these inside the school building, you should not need a password. If you would like to use these at home, see Mrs. Bicknell for the password.

GALE Opposing Viewpoints in Context

This is a great resource for writing assignments and projects that are persuasive in nature. This database is set up so that you can browse or search for popular topics and then find articles and sources either for or against those topics.
