Please feel free to email me with research questions or other library needs you may have while we’re away from school! I’m happy to help find resources as you continue to work on research papers and other class projects! ~Mrs. Jerome (email@example.com)
Mrs. DeCamilla, Mr. DeSimio, and I will be continuously adding new resources here, so please check back often!
There are lots of helpful resources available to students from home, especially from our Research Databases page. The passwords to access from home are located on the last widget at the bottom on the databases page.
There are 2 different tabs on the Research Databases page…one tab is for Databases and the other tab is for eBooks, hundreds of online reference books!
Check out Digital Maine Library to access these databases from the Maine State Library:
