Research Data User-Friendly

Research is one of many criteria for anyone going to school. Whether it be at the Elementary Level, Middle School, High School, or at the University Level, it is something we will eventually need to use.  Therefore, we would like to be of assistance. Harris County has a database which is user friendly and is in subject order. Just go to www.hcpl.net, and click database. Choose your database then type in your library card number. If you do not have a library card, stop by the Northwest Branch and sign up for  one. All we need is proof of mailing address..

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.
