Academic databases are introduced to students in Upper Secondary, and are particularly important for the IB Diploma Programme. Students in Years 10 – 13 will have 1 or 2 lessons with the Teacher Librarian to introduce them to academic databases and provide them with assistance on searching.

Feedback from students and teachers about these databases will help the school to decide which database we will subscribe to in the 2016-2017 school year.

If you have any questions, please contact the Library sunnyc@qd.ycef.com
