Precise Thinking = Precise Searching = Precise Information

Database Technology

What's that all about? Do you need to find journals, magazines, newspapers and scholarly information? Look into any of the library databases. Choose your subject and you will find full text articles and references for all your research needs. One of our most popular databases is Opposing Viewpoints. This information will help make your project ROCK! It includes statistical information, news articles, reference resources, sound snippets and a myriad of arguments for and against any hot topic issue. We are happy to help you navigate our electronic resources. Just call the library or stop on by and see me at the Reference Desk.

While we know there are several dictionaries, the granddaddy of them all is the Oxford English Dictionary. According to that source, the loooongest word is Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis! Now... what is in the world does that mean and is it even a real word? Check your local library resources or visit us at the Reference Desk to find out!
