Middle School Library


The library uses TigerGuides (LibGuides) to make resources available on and off campus. The various guides can be for an individual assignment, a grade wide research project, or for access to our extensive databases and ebook collections.

The Library is a member of the Massachusetts Library System which includes the Massachusetts eLending Project. The librarians are members of both local and national library associations, including the Greater Boston Cooperative Library Association (GBCLA), American library Association, and the Massachusetts School Librarian Association.

TigerGuides & Reference Databases

A reminder, the first time you click on a database or ebook link in one of the TigerGuides, you will be prompted to sign into our proxy server with your Thayer credentials.

Students should put a bookmark, add an icon to their desktop, or add the TigerGuide link to the task bar. You no longer have to go through the community log in because of the addition of the proxy server.

Reference Database List (This is the complete list of the databases you can access as a student or faculty member at Thayer. It's very handy when you're in your easy chair, writing your paper, and don't want to get up to look in a book for resources.)

Passwords for off-campus access to some of Thayer's reference databases can be found here» Note: When you click on this link, you'll be prompted to give your Community Login credentials.
