Subscription databases are valuable sources of information for both students and teachers. Unfortunately, they are underutilized due to over reliance on search engines such as Google. Although Google can be used to locate good information, many students do not take the time to properly evaluate web sites and waste a lot of time surfing the Internet. Please become familiar with our databases and encourage students to use them.

The HCS Library Media Center subscribes to the following databases:

  • World Book Online
  • BrainPop and BrainPop Jr.
  • EBSCO which includes a several databases including Searchasaurus, Primary Search, Middle Search, EBSCO Animals, Novelist K-8, Kids Search, Student Research Center, ERIC, and Professional Development Collection.
  • Tumblebooks
  • Discovery Streaming

Usernames and Passwords are needed to access databases from home. Please see the librarian for these.
