Have research to do?

All complete articles are assigned reading-level indicators (Lexiles®), and many articles are available in color PDF. You’ll also find easy-to-read encyclopedia entries written specifically for kids and more than one million images of photos, maps and flags!
World Almanac for Kids: This is the online database version of the World Almanac for Kids, the best-selling reference book for kids.
Curriculum Resource Center: For middle school, high school, and junior college teachers and students seeking material to supplement their coursework in core subject areas.

Please note: Some subscription databases can only be accessed from within a GCLS library, due to special requirements by our database vendors. Databases accessed within a library do not require a user to input his or her GCLS library card number.
