Databases and Research

A number of databases for projects and research are available, thanks to BCCLS and the NJ State Library. 

Databases contain excellent, reputable, scholarly information that can’t be found on Google- you need a paid subscription, which is provided by these organizations for your use.  The information is checked to ensure its accuracy, unlike many websites.
