Mark Hangartner, Arts Subject Librarian for Theology, tested three Bible study tools that are accessible via Library Databases. His findings show that each tool is useful - but for different reasons. "The Tower of Babel" served Mark as example research topic.
Oxford Encyclopedia of the Books of the Bible
There is an entry from each book of The Bible, with subheadings such as Authorship; Dates of Composition, Historical Contexts, Literary History, and History; History of Interpretation. It works well for giving a scholarly overview of each book.
In the Tower of Babel example: There is no discussion of this particular story from Genesis, but a picture of the tower from a medieval manuscript.

Encyclopedia of the Bible and its Reception
This is a very scholarly work which offers critical analysis of Biblical texts from various viewpoints. It assumes the user has a high degree of familiarity with the texts and with the tools of textual criticism.
In the Tower of Babel example: There are sections detailing Jewish, Islamic, Christian and New Age readings of the text, as well as sections showing its influence in literature, art, music and film.
Critical readings of the narrative of the tower of Babel (Gen 11:1–9) have focused on three main questions. (i) Is the narrative a compositional unity or the result of two (or more) originally separate narratives? (ii) Is there a particular historical context in which the narrative should ideally be interpreted? (iii) What is the meaning of the narrative?

Bibleworks is quite a different tool. It can help you find the Biblical text, in many languages including Hebrew if you want, and explanatory text for words used in the story. It is not a commentary on the text in the same way the texts listed above are.
In the Tower of Babel example: As well as the text Genesis 11:1-9 you can find the entries in the Hebrew English lexicons attached to BibleWorks which connect Babel with Babylon. You can create maps with places named in the story.
