Amongst a ton of other things, I am looking at databases that could be useful for the students/staff here. We are currently subscribing to EBSCOs full text database Academic search elite (and some more citation databases through EBSCO). I have a feeling that the level of the content there is a bit high though. From my collegue in Japan, I got the tips that Questia could be useful, especially for IB students.

I have emailed them to get more information about costs and what they offer.

I was also notified that schools tend to use Google Scholar as well. I have used Google Scholar in my old work, but mainl towards researchers and college students. But maybe it could be useful here as well.

But my main task regarding databases and information in general right now, is to get started with some user education.
