Primary Search is included free for all BC ELN sites with subscription to Academic Search.
Designed for elementary school libraries, Primary Search is a full-text database providing popular children’s magazines, easy-to-read encyclopedic entries and a vast image collection. Students can learn about a variety of topics, including endangered species, famous musicians, fitness and space exploration.
Primary Search provides students with encyclopedic entries written specifically for kids. In addition, the database includes full-text popular magazines including those from Cricket Media, such as Ladybug and Spider. Other magazines include Highlights, Junior Scholastic and dozens more.
All full-text articles, many available in color PDF, are assigned reading level indicators (Lexiles) to provide educators with an estimate of the result’s reading difficulty and the approximate grade-level reading ability required for comprehension. Lexiles help teachers meet the needs of students with varying reading abilities and interests and allow students to read along at their own pace.
- More than 175,000 full-text articles (many in color PDF) from more than 100 popular children's magazines
- Easy-to-read encyclopedic entries written specifically for kids
- An image collection of more than 1.9 million relevant photos, maps and flags
