New Databases

The Library has subscribed to some new databases! We now offer to Georgetown patrons: Consumer Reports Online, Mango Languages, World Book Online, and Learning Express Library. You will need to input your library card number to access these databases at home.

Consumer Reports Online provides ratings and reviews, recommendations and buying advice across several franchises. Each product includes an overview and a ratings report card, as well as tester reviews & recommendations.

Mango Languages is designed to equip you with conversational abilities from the very start. Whether you’re learning how to order a pizza or ask when the game starts, Mango immerses you in real, everyday conversations in a wide variety of foreign languages. It also features ESL instruction in English, tailored for speakers of more than a dozen languages.

World Book Online is the place to go when you need fast, reliable information for homework, reports, or just a lingering question. Using the same expert information found in The World Book Encyclopedia, these easy-to-navigate websites feature a colorful, approachable look and feel, designed for kids, and articles written at your student’s level.

Learning Express Library offers practice tests and tutorials designed for students elementary through graduate levels and adult learners. Academic or licensing tests are available, with immediate scoring, complete answer explanations, and individualized results analysis. If using the service for the first time, you must register in order to use this database.

Find these databases and more at our Online Resources section! You can always find this section when you click the Services menu on our home page.
