One of the many research tools that DPL offers its customers (that means you, dear reader) is access to a wide range of databases. I hear you asking why you should care. Surely databases can’t possibly be of use to you, a cool teen with nary a care in the world? Au contraire. You know how your teachers are constantly telling you that you can’t use Wikipedia for research, because anyone can hop on and edit it? Or how you have to be really careful about where you find information on the Internet, because approximately 90% of it is hot garbage (at least in terms of research helpfulness)?
