Helpful Homework Sites
Here are a list of great websites and databases that can be used to help with homework and reports. Many of them are websites chosen by librarians to contain good and accurate information.
The good thing about databases is that they are just like reference books – the information is totally accurate and the information originally appeared in print before. The databases are indicated by an asterisk (*) after their name. In order to access the databases, you must sign in using your Norwalk Public Library card.
