The Woodson Research Center collects, organizes, preserves and describes:
These materials are available for Rice faculty, students and alumni, as well as local, national and international researchers via exhibitions, lectures, and other public events, and by publishing print and web-based materials highlighting the department's primary source collections.
The Kelly Center for Government Information, Data, and Geospatial Services is a federal depository library and provides free and effective public access to government information, including patents and trademarks, to the Rice community and to the 7th Congressional District of the State of Texas.
The Business Information Center, located in McNair Hall on the second floor, has a variety of print and online resources related to companies and industries, investment, statistics, careers in business, marketing, and more. Some resources are limited to use in the business library but most are available through the Fondren Library catalog.
This selection of resources for young readers is designed to help you navigate through the wealth of online information in Fondren's collections. Most of Fondren Library's materials are intended for college- or post-college-level students and researchers, but we offer databases and other resources that are useful for elementary through high school needs.
The collection of databases below will retrieve materials suitable for the younger audience. Most indicate intended reading level, and may allow you to limit the retrieved material by very specific level of reading achievement (e.g. Lexile reading score).
