An Introduction to World Book:

In the next few weeks we will be covering the World Book Encyclopedia online database and all that it has to offer. The World Book database that BPL offers is specifically designed for public libraries and is an easy to use reference resource for both kids and adults.

How to access World Book: On the left-hand side of the homepage you will see a tab that says "Online Research". From there you will scroll down to select the World Book link. When you click the link you are immediately taken to the World Book homepage, where you can choose which section of the database you would like to use.

What are the different sections of World Book? There are six different sections: Kids, Timelines, Info Finder, Reference Center, Discover, and Enciclopedia Estudiantil Hallazgos (A Student Encyclopedia in Spanish). The information is separated into different categories to make searching a little easier for you. Stay tuned next week when we walk through theKids Section and all of the activities, science projects, and information available there!
