Digital Resources:
Students and staff have available to them a number of subscription databases containing the full text of articles from magazines, newspapers, encyclopedias, medical sources, etc.  There are also non-fiction e-books available through the Putnam/Northern Westchester BOCES School Library System.  These can be used from home through the Internet, but require a User I.D. and Password.  Stop by the library to obtain these.  For a description of these sources and links to them see the Digital Resources page on this website.
