Research Databases

Where do I start?
When beginning your research for a project, you may wish to use a broad search at first to see what kinds of resources are available about your topic.
With our library catalog, you can quickly see if our databases have articles on your subject by logging in and using the OneSearch feature. To narrow down to only what you need, visit subject-specific databases or create a targeted search strategy.
Accessing the Databases from Off-Campus
To search the databases from off-campus you will need to log in. Our database providers know us to be principled scholars; we protect the passwords to these resources.
After logging in to your Meridian Google account, visit the Access Guide for Students to see usernames and passwords. If you have any questions or cannot open the document, email the librarian.
Subject Guides
Coming soon - lists of databases, open educational resources, and other informational websites arranged by IB subject group

Search Tools

The library catalog is equipped with OneSearch, which lets you see what's in our databases. The search bar above will only search the databases.
Note: this is a good place to start learning about a topic. For more in-depth research, use a subject-specific database.
Use Gale Power Search to explore all of our Gale databases from one search bar. Many of our databases are managed by TexQuest, a service for Texas schools run by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission. Visit the TexQuest portal to sort databases by subject, age level, and more.
