EBSCOhost is provided by IowaLink, and funded by the Roy J. Carver Charitable Trust. This service is a collection of databases (many full-text) focusing on business, health & clinical reference, academic subjects, and international newspapers. The materials found in this service include journals, books, pamphlets, reference resources, and newspapers.

ProQuest Central accesses 27 different databases to form the one of the largest multidisciplinary database availalble. You will find a variety of specialty journals on business, biology, science & technology, health and medical information, social sciences, arts and humanities, as well as newspaper sources.
Stars form in large clouds of gas and dust. Planets grow in the circumstellar disk that surrounds every newborn star. To learn how stars form, CfA scientists study the structure of dark clouds and the young stars within the clouds. To study the birth of planets, CfA scientists examine the structure of circumstellar disks and outflowing jets associated with the youngest stars. Once a star is mature, its brightness is fairly steady for hundreds of millions to tens billions of years. This steadiness allows planets orbiting a star to develop stable surfaces that might allow life to develop and perhaps flourish. CfA scientists study the structure and evolution of stable (and unstable stars) and search for planets orbiting around them.
This Lab explores what makes the Sun so volatile and gives you access to the same data, images, and tools that scientists use to predict solar storms. Create a free account to track your progress. Information is provided by PBS and NASA.
Royal Museums Greenwich comprises four sites: the National Maritime Museum, the Royal Observatory, the Queen's House and Cutty Sark. Together these constitute one museum working to illustrate for everyone the importance of the sea, ships, time and the stars and their relationship with people.
The Stanford Solar Center is dedicated to sharing the joy and excitement of solar science exploration. Acting as the education and public outreach arm of the Solar Observatories Group, and funded by NASA, the Solar Center provides resources, activities, and projects relating to the Sun for teachers, students, and the public.
Provided by the Chandra X-Ray Observatory the information focuses on stellar evolution and on the youth and middle age of stars. Chandra and other X-ray telescopes focus on the high-energy action of this drama - the turbulent, multimillion degree outer atmospheres and gale-force outflows of gas from hot, luminous stars.
