  Online Databases

Mesa Public Schools provides teachers and students access to several online databases.  The licenses for each of these databases have specific guidelines for what you can use and how you can use it.  On the right, these databases are listed with a brief summary of their guidelines for use.  In most cases, they also provide the citation for their information.  If you are still unsure how you can use the information, please look up the copyright for the individual database.

These databases can be found on the MPS Library Resource Centers site.  To use them from home, you are required to log in.  You can get the user name and password from your teacher or Library Resource Specialist.
