Got Homework?

School is back in session for most students now, which means ... homework!

Sacramento Public Library has some nifty homework helpers for students of all ages. They make doing research easier, because you don't need to sign up for an Internet computer to use them. They are also available using your home computer even when the libraries are closed! The library pays for them, and you can use them for free! Anyone can use these e-resources in the library, but to use them at home, you will need a Sacramento library card.

  • Live Homework Help - Sign on after school to work with a licensed instructor if you are having trouble with your math, English, history or social studies homework.
  • World Book Online - Click through to find all the articles from the print set plus magazine articles, images, and sound files.
  • More online resources for students - Find information about countries, world conflicts, current news, accelerated reading lists, biographies and more!
  • Research Guides on many topics prepared by librarians, with links to books in the library's collection and to selected web sites.
  • Kids' and Teens' homework help pages.
  • You can also call the reference desk to speak with a librarian (916-264-2920) [hours] or send an e-mail to the library (askus@saclibrary.org) for an answer within 2 days.
There's something for everyone - even adult learners! Click the "Library Home Page" link in the right column on this page, and then click on "Find Articles" to see the entire list of online research sources your library provides.

You're going to get an "A" on that report, right?

The new e-cards also work for accessing the library's e-resources from personal computers.
