All recommended websites and organizations are annotated and reviewed by Cavendish Square Digital's team of editors, professionals experienced in creating content for students.
However, since web content is constantly changing, Cavendish Square Publishing recommends that young users check with their parents or teachers before visiting any linked websites.

The Cavendish Square Digital homepage features both a list browse and a grid browse for accessing titles. You may toggle between the two views by clicking the icons centered above the title list. The list browse includes a text description of each database. To view the description while in the grid browse, click any thumbnail image to see more information on that title. To reach the homepage from anywhere in the site, simply click the Cavendish Square Digital logo on the upper left of any page.
The homepage's highly visual design and navigation draws users into the resource and encourages inquiry and curiosity. Clicking the “Explore This Title” link will take you to that title's list of articles. Once on the title page, you will be able to browse articles by keyword search or from an alphabetical list.
Navigation and Search
Cavendish Square Digital allows you to find articles using the interactive homepage's visual browse, the title page's alphabetical list or keyword search, or a site-wide text and media search.
Visual browse is accessed directly on the homepage. You may toggle between a grid or list view of all titles. Both views include descriptive text describing each title, as well as a link inviting you to Explore This Title.
Once you have selected a title, you will be able to browse articles alphabetically or through a keyword search.
You can search for an article from any page using the search box in the top right corner. Simply type in your search term(s) and hit enter or click on the magnifying glass. This will produce two types of search results: Text search and media search. Text search results will appear on the search results page. Media search results (images, diagrams, maps, and timelines) can be accessed by clicking the Media tab at the top of the search results page.
If your search does not return any results, the site will suggest other search terms that will return better results for you. Your results page will display “Did you mean” with up to three choices of alternate searches. Click any of those terms to start a new search with the term.
Text Search Results
Text search results appear on the search results page in a numeric list. The search term is highlighted in the search results. Users will view the name of an article, the content from the article that corresponds to the search term, and the title the article appears in. Clicking on a result will take the user to the article section that contains the search term.
To the left of the text search tab, you can filter your results to narrow your search. After conducting a search, select which title(s) you would like to include in your refined results. You can reset this by selecting "show all results" at the top of the window.
If no results are found, the site will suggest a possible alternative.
Media Search Results
Media search results appear by selecting the Media tab at the top of the search results page. You will find images that correspond to the search term. Clicking on the item will take you to the article section where the image appears. On the media results tab, you can select which media types you would like to display (e.g., photographs or maps). You can reset this by selecting "show all results" at the top of the window. You can toggle back to text results by clicking the Text tab at the top of the search results page.
All articles are laid out in the same format to allow for easy reading and navigation. The left side of each page features buttons that allow you to print or email the article. The Cite This Article button lets you view the article citation in MLA (Modern Language Association), APA (American Psychological Association), or Chicago Manual of Style (16th edition) format.
The article table of contents appears below these buttons. Click on any section in the table of contents to navigate to that section. You can also click on the article links in the Investigate section to read about topics related to the current article.
Each article contains Research Tools and a Media Gallery. These can be accessed at the top of each article page. The Research Tools menu may contain links to lists of websites, recommended reading lists, and many other helpful research documents. The Media Gallery gives you a glimpse of all the images contained in the article at-a-glance. Clicking an image will bring to you to the area of the article where the image appears in context.
Below the Research Tools and Media Gallery buttons, you will find a navigation pane that displays which title the article you are reading appears in. Clicking the Home button will return you to the Cavendish Square Digital homepage, where you can browse all titles using the grid or list view. Clicking the title name will return you to the alphabetical article list for that title.
In the top right corner of each article are two helpful tools:
1. The Select Language drop-down menu allows you to instantly translate article text into 80 languages.
2. The Share tool allows you to save and share articles with family and friends via Facebook or other services. With this feature, full articles can be viewed with no login required.
At the bottom of each section, you can find the article citation in MLA, APA, and Chicago Manual of Style format.
All articles contain visual elements. To view an image in its full-size format, click the “View Full Size” link. A new window will open containing the image. This is especially useful for viewing images that contain labels. From this window, you can print the image. You can also share the image using the "Share" link. This allows you to share the image via Facebook or other services. With this feature, images can be viewed with no login required. Users can also download images by clicking the "Download" button. Images downloaded using the download button will also capture citation information.
Cavendish Square Digital is proud to offer text-to-speech by ReadSpeaker. Text-to-speech helps newer, challenged, or ESL readers by allowing them to listen to the text as it is read aloud.
Text-to-speech can be activated in two ways. First, by clicking the Listen button at the top of an article section. This will open a window that displays the play controls, settings, and a “No Sound” link in case the audio does not play. Text-to-speech is also activated by selecting text in an article and clicking the pop-up button.
When you click the Settings link, you can choose whether you want the text highlighting option to be on a word per word and/or sentence basis, or if you don’t want any highlighting. You can also adapt the speed of the reading and select a male or female voice. The “No Sound” link can be used if your system requirements do not allow for text highlighting to work and will download an mp3 file of the audio for that article section.
In all articles, the Print button in the left navigation bar will open a new window that allows you to either print the current section of the article you are viewing or to print the entire article. Images and the article citation will be printed.
You can also print the current section by going to your browser’s File menu and selecting the Print option. If you have difficulty printing, please check your printer setup.
Click the Email button in the left navigation bar to email an article to yourself or someone else. When you click this button, a new window containing a form will open. You must enter your name, your email address, and the recipient’s email address. If you wish to send the article to yourself, put your own email address in the field for the recipient’s email address.
You may also enter an optional greeting/message to the recipient and attach images from the article to your email if you wish. The article citation will also be included in the email in MLA (Modern Language Association) format, APA (American Psychological Association), or Chicago Manual of Style (16th edition) format.
Email messages, in rare cases, may take up to an hour to be received after they are sent. If you have trouble receiving email sent from the site, please check your email junk mailbox or filter, or check the spelling of the email address to which you are sending.
Click the Cite This Article button in the left navigation bar to see the article citation in MLA (Modern Language Association) format, APA (American Psychological Association), or Chicago Manual of Style (16th edition) format. A new window will open to display the citation.
