Online Library Resources

Several “How To” videos are available in the 2019-2020 WPHS Library Blackboard course. These include, accessing ebooks, searching the catalog, working in databases, and using NoodleTools for citing sources.

The county and the West Potomac HS library subscribe to a number of databases.  The databases contain vetted information and sources.  Passwords to all of the databases can be found in the 2019-2020 WPHS Library Blackboard in the “information section.” Please remember that these are for the use of students of West Potomac HS and/or FCPS and they should not be shared with anyone else.

Please enjoy your school library books at home. No books are overdue and they can be returned when school buildings re-open.

We look forward to working with students virtually for the remainder of the school year. Please feel free to reach out to either one or both of us to help.

Mrs. Landon and Ms. Rice
