Welcome to the Southworth Library LibGuides. These guides provide access to the numerous resources that are available to the Rivers Community. Many of the guides are created in collaboration with faculty members to support an assignment or research report. We have 49 databases, digital access to The Boston Globe, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and the Washington Post.
The Rivers School subscribes to numerous databases that support the curriculum and personal interests. Some are broad in scope and some have a more focused collection.
