articles, including full-text of magazine/journal issues you can read.
images, audio, and videos.
tutorials, practice tests, and quizzes.
full reference ebooks, which are searchable for your topic.
Below are materials on what is available in our resources and how to use them. Need help with a product we don't have a video or tutorial for yet, or need help deciding which databases are best for your research topic? Just contact the State Library.
Explora Multi-Search - Exploras have multiple databases powering them, so you search once instead of having to do your search again in another database. This is a generic video, please realize we have more than one Explora version available (general, kids).
