Haltom High School Library, October 2015, Second Six Weeks

Electronic Resources

The HHS Library offers many electronic resources for staff and student use. Most are subscription services and require usernames and passwords for access. Legally, those cannot be posted on our website; however, database bookmarks are available at the circulation desk. For your convenience, I've included access codes for each resource in this newsletter. Portals to most of these resources are found on the library's Database Page. Resources are linked below and grouped alphabetically by curricular area. The list is long; please scroll to your curricular area. Try them, you may like them! If you have questions or need help, please contact the library.

Access at School

Most of these resources are IP authenticated; therefore, they open at school without usernames/passwords. For remote access, you and your students will need usernames/passwords for access. Emailed with this SMORE is the Database Bookmark (3 per sheet). You may print them for your students, or you may request copies from the library. Bookmarks are located on the Circulation counter.
