Whether you're a bookworm or just getting back into reading, literature is a great way to learn about new cultures, understand humanity, improve your writing and expand your horizons.
The Touro College Library System has many of the great classics of literature and other books related to our curriculum. Browse the "P" section at your local branch to find great reading material.

Databases are a great place to search for individual articles from newspapers, magazines, and academic journals.
While many news and magazine articles may also be found with an internet search engine, our subscription databases can provide you with access to older articles that are not available online and other pay-per-view materials, plus additional options to refine your search. As far as scholarly articles go, databases should be your first stop! Most scholarly literature is not freely available.
