The ultimate elementary reference resource
eLibrary Elementary — the ultimate elementary full-text reference resource — tailors all the media types and search functionality of eLibrary for the young reader and researcher. It's an easy-to-use general reference database designed specifically to engage and guide younger students.
Students of all ages use eLibrary Elementary's powerful, yet engaging and easy-to-use search interface to find the answers they need from more than 390 magazines, newspapers, books, and transcripts—plus thousands of maps, images, educator-approved websites from Homework Central®, and audio/video titles, all selected as appropriate for elementary school studies.
Colorful icons and a variety of search options ensure beginning learners can find what they need. Users can employ natural language, keyword, topic browse, and publication searches. Searching across seven different media types or any combination of media types in one query saves users time.
Access to historical and current multimedia content engages young learners, enriches text-only information, supports multiple learning styles, and enhances student presentations and research. Our Reference Desk also provides everything young researchers need to begin the research process. And users can create marked lists, and view, print, or email any document or image in one easy step.
Teachers can use eLibrary to integrate technology and digital content to support classroom instruction in all subjects.
