POWER LIBRARY Database Resources

For this animal research project , Mrs. Scott recommends SIRS Discoverer (a part of Power Library) as a great database resource. Remember ... DATABASES are better than websites for research because the information is reviewed and checked.  It has been published in print form somewhere.
