Why Databases?

  1. 1. Why Databases? Why not Google? Databases are paid for by GCPS for your use. Google is free. We all know that something that is paid for is better than something that is free!
  2. 2. Why databases instead of Google?
  3. 3. Databases are accurate. Databases are up-to-date. Databases are written by experts. Databases provide valid information. Databases make the best use of your time!
  4. 4. How can databases save ME time?
  5. 5. Here is an example of how you can save time researching: you need information onWilliam Shakespeare. Search for William Shakespeare in Google. The Google search gives you over 50 MILLION results. Going through all those results for valid information will take forever and you don’t even know if the information is accurate!
  6. 6. Perform the same search using the database Biography in Context. Valid and accurate results sorted into categories. Much better use of your time!
  7. 7. How do I access the databases?
  8. 8. Login to your eClass from the GCPS website gwinnett.k12.ga.us *Use the same login information you use to login to the computers at school (username is your student ID#)
  9. 9. Go to Online Research Library on the Right-Hand side Click on the lock for the passwords to use from home!
