Hayner Library subscribes to many online databases where patrons can find authoritative sources of research materials, full-text articles, and more. Recently, the library has added four new EBSCO databases to help students of all ages. The new databases are Testing & Education Reference Center, and Explora Primary Schools, Public Libraries, and Secondary Schools.
Testing & Education Reference Center: Prepare for tests, plan for college, explore career choices, build a resume, and find job help with this database. You can take practice tests for AP exams, the ACT, SAT, GED, GRE, ASVAB, career tests, and much more. Once you log in, create a username and password to track your progress on tests. Research colleges using the College Search tool, and search for scholarships under Scholarship Search, featuring $8 billion in available scholarships or grants. You can create a professional resume using the Resume Builder module. The career module covers career change, job search tools, resume basics, and more in Virtual Career Library.
Explora Primary Schools; Explora Public Libraries; and Explora Secondary Schools: Find full-text articles on topics for research and classroom assignments with the Explora databases. You have an option to browse topics by categories right from the home page. Categories include: Arts and Literature, Biography, Current Events, Geography and Cultures, History and Social Science, Science and Math, and more. You have easy access to primary source documents, images, and other sources. Other features include Text-To-Speech to read articles aloud to you, and the citation tool, which converts the article citation to the style you choose.
Hayner databases can be accessed by going to www.haynerlibrary.org, then the link Online Resources. For home access, enter your last name and your Hayner library card barcode to log on.
