Resources

These resource pages have many helpful research sites for you to access additional information after you check Destiny and also use WebPath Express for websites on your topic.

Remember that you need to have a public library card to use POWER Library and ACCESS PA from home.  You do have access to them while at school from my website or through the WSSD's Virtual Library under the Tech & Media Department tab.  The link to the district's library catalog is also there if you want to search other school libraries as well.

Online Database Info

These resources should be your first stop in researching a topic for school.

These databases are accessible at home or in the library while you are in school. You can even access them from a computer in the classroom.  For home access to the databases,  you will need to see library staff for the passwords.

**Don't forget to go through the nearest public library's website from home to get to Power Library. You will need to have your public library card in order to use your barcode number to log-in.
