Included are such as Grove's Dictionaries of  Music, Art, Astronomy, Astrophysics, and Life Sciences; Gale's Contemporary Authors; PoemFinder; StoryFinder; Multimedia Archives of more than 500,000 current and historical photographs; NoveList that lists over 100,000 titles, 75,000 full texts, and includes over 36,000 subject headings; databases of magazine and newspaper articles, many available full text; several search programs aimed at elementary and middle school students (don't overlook these for your own research - you'll find many simplified explanations);  and possibly more, depending on the programs subscribed to by your state.
