Databases

Databases are scholarly, well-respected resources.  They include thousands of articles from magazines, newspapers, reference books, media broadcasts, and more.

Below is a list of databases available to West/Romig students.  Because our school or state has purchased these databases, you may need a password to access the content.  Passwords are available in the library.
