Online Resources

Polk County Schools’ Library Media Services acknowledges the importance of maintaining access to current resources, building research skills, and developing digital literacy skills. On this page, you will find links to a variety of online resources. Some subscription services may ask for a password when accessing these resources from a device outside of a school campus. While we can not provide that password here, we can provide a hint for the password associated with MOST services: To improve your reading skills, you should “_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _”. (The answer is two words, but in the password, it is all one word.) You should have been made aware of this password in your school’s library media center. For more details about logging into these Online Resources, see your school’s library media person.
