infobase full screenCritical Evaluation:

Infobase eBook database provides over 3000 nonfiction books from a variety of publishers including Facts on File, Bloom`s, and Chelsea House.

Users can access the books through the subject directory, on the left side. The subjects support the curriculum at a high school level including Ancient History, Biographies, Careers & Education and Economy & Business to name a few.

Users can search all the books using the search box in a full text search or in a title search. Users also have an option to use an Advanced Search. Alternately, users can search within a particular title or click on a specific chapter.

An Internet connection is required to access the ebooks. At this time, the books cannot be downloaded on a personal device. As a result, the database allows unlimited simultaneous access to users, a definite benefit for school homework.

Reader’s Annotation:

Infobase ebooks database is an excellent online database that allows users to search across all 3600 books with one search.
