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 in nature, most likely  JStor, Questia, GVR, Google Scholar and books will be your best bet. Please see my notes beneath each one to help guide you.
