The Trumbull Library offers more databases than the ones listed below, but these are most helpful for completing school work. Trumbull residents will need their library barcode number to log in.

A to Z: The World
“AtoZ the World” explores the culture and customs, social conditions, and government of 175 countries worldwide. This database provides helpful background information for traveling or doing business abroad -- and for school reports and general knowledge.

A to Z: World Travel
Use the “AtoZ World Travel” database to find helpful information for more than 200 major American and world cities. Great for planning vacations or business trips – or armchair traveling from home.

Britannica Online Library Edition
Encyclopaedia Britannica, first published in 1768, is no longer available in print. Britannica Online is actually two databases in one -- Britannica Kids for children and Britannica Reference Center for adults and older students – which makes it great for both homework assignments and general information.

This "reader’s advisory" database suggests fiction authors and titles similar to ones you’ve already enjoyed and recommends novels by genre, subject, character, setting, and time period.
