These Are Your Search Apps
These apps will give you access to quality information. Click on any of the icons above. You will need a User ID and Password (except for the catalog). If you don't remember them, you can find them by clicking on the Passwords button below.
Search the Catalog
This will bring you to the BMS library catalog, and you can search it 24/7. (No password needed.)
Using EBSCO's Explora, you can search through over a thousand magazines, journals, and newspapers. If you use Explora, I suggest that you use "Advanced Search" and that you type in your topic and an age-appropriate magazine such as the ones we subscribe to in the library. Otherwise, you may end up with only college-level texts. Or, you could click on a Lexile level to get age-appropriate results. Click the button below for an example and suggested magazines.
This is the Gale Virtual Reference Library. Whatever you are studying in your classes, there's an e-book for that in GVRL.
