Who Needs Wikipedia?

Did you know you have access to online encyclopedias for free? No, it's not Wikipedia - it's our Grolier Online database, and it does more than you think! If you have a Burbank Library card, you can access it from home.

What can you expect? If you search on a topic of interest, you will find relevant encyclopedia and magazine articles, reliable websites, media (photographs, flags, and maps, for instance), and news feature stories. If you're more interested in definitions and spellings, try the children, adult, and Spanish/English dictionaries. For geography buffs, explore their atlas.

Teachers! There is something for you here as well. You can find lesson plans by grade and subject, links to the state standards, and more!
