There are currently 20 Databases that students can use for research for various projects and assignments here at UISG. This list continues to grow yearly to support students’ quest for knowledge.
The Primary Library page has various tabs customized for primary students. There is News for Kids, which contains Scholastic Kids Press showcasing kid reporters from the ages of 10-14 from across the globe. There are also dedicated pages for each year level with links to their UOIs, so they have a reliable place to access the databases related to what they’re studying.
