Jefferson Spanish Students See Benefits Of Using Online Databases To Aid Research

April 15, 2012

"Does anyone know what an online database is? Let me give you a good analogy," said Jefferson Middle School librarian Julie Livengood to fifth-graders in Amy Tousley's Spanish class. "Who selects which books are the good ones to have in our library? Right! I do because I'm the librarian! Now, think about the Internet. Who determines which websites are good and which are bad? No one! There is no Internet librarian, but luckily there are collections of websites called databases that have been created by companies of experts. A database, like the one we will use today, is a collection of reliable and accurate information and is often a good place to start our research."
