Homework and Research Tools

Don’t just stare at your notebook in frustration… let us help!  With your library card, you have access to databases, digital resources, and print materials that are sure to help you make the grade!

Homework Help

The library has dozens of Research Databases to help you find the information that you need!

You can find science fair ideas by checking out the Science in Context database, magazine, and newspaper articles by using Academic Search Premier or search current and past newspapers from our archives. Find databases by subject by clicking on the topics to the left on our Research Databases page. You can find biographical information using one of the biography databases, you can get help with your essays by using one of our excellent social issues databases, and you can even prepare for a big test using a test prep database!

And it gets better—as long as you have your M/RCPL library card, you can access most of the databases from home! Need to apply for a library card but want to use these resources right away? Get a free e-card here and get instant access!

Recommended Resources

Streaming and Downloads

Did you know that your library card gives you access to thousands of free ebooks, audiobooks, magazines, movies, music, and more?  Why pay for an ebook or an audiobook subscription when you can check out our collection for free?  Best of all, the books and movies return themselves so there’s no way to accidentally forget to turn the item back in!  Some of the resources are apps on your phone, some of them can be accessed through a TV, and some are through your computer.  Click below to get started.

At MRCPL, we pride ourselves on being open to all, collaborative, visionary, imaginative, and customer-focused.
