Jersey Clicks

Jersey Clicks is New Jersey's statewide portal for searching full-text databases offered by the New Jersey State Library, the New Jersey Library Network, and funds from the Library Services and Technology Act.

These high quality databases cover subjects such as health, history, business, education, science, current events, literature, and popular fiction. Even though you are accessing these via the Web, most resources are digitized from print resources that you would find in excellent library collections. So while the format may be electronic, the information is identical to the printed companion version.

Access these resources remotely from any Internet connection 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

If you have questions regarding the use of any of these online resources, contact Miss Bradley, Teacher Librarian.
