Use District Databases to Find Articles from Magazines, Newspapers and More

Not everything can be linked to from Google. One of the big myths about online information is that everything is free and easy to find on the internet / world wide web. Many things are only available if you have proper access, including paid sites with usernames and passwords.

The good news is that as a student of Surrey Schools, you can use subscription databases that SD36 has paid for.

Find out how you can use a district online resource like Ebsco to find articles from thousands of different magazines, newspapers, journals and other sources. This includes fining full text articles, with all the pictures, maps, diagrams and other visuals.
