The library at the Academy of American Studies offers a wide range of online resources to assist students with their classwork and teachers in planning units for instruction. The State of New York provides access to the databases in the NYC School Library System's Digital Resources at no charge for every resident in the state.  If you are using a computer on the school's network, you will not need a password. Most databases are authenticated using geolocation, and if you using any computer connected to the Internet within the state of New York, you should not need a password.
