A topic guide for Mr. McCabe's World History assignment about India



You are an investigative journalist. Your news editor has given you a list of 8 possible topics for your next article and asked you to do some initial research on each to determine which would be best for your next publication. Here are all the resources you will need to get started. 


Logging into the Databases from Home


From school, clicking on any of the database links will get you directly in to any database.

From home, you need login credentials. These are subscription databases, which means that someone (either the state of NJ or Northern Highlands) has paid for you to have access, so you have to prove that you are entitled to access them. Click on the image below to access the Google Doc containing the passwords. You must be signed in with a Northern Highlands account to view these passwords.

How to Save Links in Databases

Unlike those of a free website, database URLs are dynamic. That means that they change, so if you copy and paste a URL from a database into a Google Doc, the link will not work.

Permanent links are found in different places in different families of databases. The table below will show you where to find permanent links to the database pages you want to visit again.
