World Book Online

I have now added a tile for for easy access to the World Book Online website. This tile is accessible by all Glow Users in Aberdeenshire and can be found on the Aberdeenshire Launchpad. See screen shot below.

Aberdeenshire Libraries has subscribed to World Book Online for schools. This provides free access to schools to high quality information and resources to meet the needs of students of every age, ability, and interest. Using the same expert information found in the World Book Encyclopedia, World Book Online features
• A colourful, approachable look and feel, making it attractive and easy to use
• Easy access on smartphones and tablets
• Different databases for multiple and diverse needs
• Articles, illustrations, maps, audio files, videos, e-books, primary source documents, and more
• Various lesson plans and tips for teachers

Individual databases are as follows
Primary schools – World Book Kids, World Book Student, Early World of Learning
Academies – World Book Kids, World Book Student, World Book Advanced

The resources can be accessed within schools and also from home 24/7.
