Tulsa Public Schools Online Databases (Subscription Websites)

  • Nettrekker - This is a subscription search engine that finds free web sites for you. Free search engines (Google, Yahoo,, etc.) provide you with worthless to excellent sites, and you have to sort through thousands/millions of hits to find the quality sites. Nettrekker just provides you with the quality sites. It saves you time. It's efficient. (Limitation of Nettrekker: If your search has nothing to do with the curriculum, Nettrekker may not cover it.)
  • Safari Montage - Students can search and watch videos.
  • Student Research Center
  • EBSCO Host Research Databases -- Choose Middle School Databases
  • Opposing Viewpoints Resource Center - Type in Energy. Look in the lefthand column to choose and click on something more exact.
  • Discovering Collection
  • Grolier Online Passport - There are seven online encyclopedias in this collection. You can search then all at once or choose the encyclopedia(s) that you think would be relevant and search them individually.
  • SIRS Discoverer
  • Online Newspapers - This is not a database, but rather a collection of links to local, state, country, and international daily newspapers. Search for Energy news. Compare the same news from various countries. Is there a detectable bias?
