Library Catalogs

Are you trying to find information on your topic? A good place to start and see if there are enough book resources available is here :

The Thacher School Library Catalog


The Thacher School Databases

These database links will only work on campus. If you are off campus, you will need to access them from following the prompt at the bottom of the database links on the Thacher Library web page.

Databases vary in the type of information they offer. If your topic is historical, most likely  QuestiaSchool, JStor, Ebrary and books will be your best bet. If your topic is timely or looking at the history of the development of a country or it's relations over time than many of the databases and books can assist you. Please see my notes beneath each one to help guide you.
