New Databases Page

Our Databases page has a fresh new look!  We have streamlined our subject categories and added a new "Best Bets" category. Due to changes made by MeL, OCLC FirstSearch and its components are no longer part of our collection. As always if you can't find what you are looking for, do ask a librarian for help.
