To get to the databases, go to the Online Databases page. You'll find 2 links to databases that will be very helpful for this project: Elementary School Research, and Environmental Research. Check out the databases in both sections for the best research articles.

If you are accessing a database from home, you will be asked for your library card number, which is the 14 digit number on your library card beginning with 21001...
