World Book Online

The Library subscribes to World Book Online, the online version of World Book Encyclopedia, that students and staff can access from both school and home. Not only does it contain the same entries that are included in the print version of the encyclopedia, but there are links to magazine and on-line articles, that are up-to-date. Each entry also has a citation that can be added to bibliographies.


Please come and see the Library team for our username and password :)
