Please see a librarian if you are interested in trying out any of these:

CultureGrams - Goes beyond mere facts and figures to deliver an insider's perspective on daily life and culture, including the history, customs, and lifestyles of the world's people. The growing diversity of the U.S. population and the new emphasis on globalism and multiculturalism make CultureGrams an indispensable resource for teachers and students to understand their country and their world.

eLibrary Science - eLibrary Science offers laser-focused science content and tools along with unique video and dozens of manipulatives found in no other online science reference product. eLibrary Science, in partnership with premier reference publisher Salem Press, also includes more than 20 of Salem's high-quality, high-interest reference titles, such as Animal Life and Plant Life from the Magill's Encyclopedia of Science program; science-related titles from the Great Events in History series, and other award-winning titles such as the Encyclopedia of Genetics.
