For Kids / Research

Need some homework help?

The population in the library is getting younger and quieter – that means that homework season is back in swing. Here are some resources to help any homework victims you might know. (Some of these resources are great for life-after-school too!)

Internet Public Library
A fantastic directory of resources maintained by librarians. You can also submit a question. I volunteered here for years – the questions and answers are great. It also reminds me that you should also check with your local library for help online and off.

NoodleTools
Enter in data for a research resource and NoodleTools will give you the formatted citation. MLA formatting is available for free. Enhanced (and APA format) access is $8 a year. Where was this when I was in class?!

Yahooligans
A search engine and directory for kids. They provide a parent’s guide and curriculum for teachers. (I used some lesson plans when I was a computer teacher and I thought they were pretty good.)

Free Online Lookups
OK this is more for the workers out there. It’s a list of 23 database of info – from demographics of zip codes to place name locators. (This is really worth the look!)

InfoPlease
Great advice on how to be a students and how to do homework. The general site has links to reference resources. Unfortunately this site has popup ads.
