Diseases project

SciGov This site has over 60 databases and 2,200 scientific websites it searches from.

World Wide Science supplies database articles from around the world.


Kids Health: Health Problems: "Even kids can have health problems. Some problems are serious - and some are not so serious. You can get all the info you need about health problems like cancer, asthma, muscular dystrophy, and more."

WebMd.comwebmd  This site is written by doctors to help people with their health problems.  It is a favorite of Mrs. Sheridan's when looking up health issues.

Health and Wellness Center.  Password: tiger.  This database works with our Google accounts, so if you log in with your school email address, you can save articles right into your Google Drive.

Author Resources is your best bet for getting information about authors - especially as our school's network tends to block blogs, which many author's websites are.

All of these resources are found from inside Inspire. If you are here at school, you won't need a password. If you use it at home, though, you have to prove that you are an Indiana resident in order to use it. Here are my top picks (most found on > Databases by Subject > Biographies). provides videos and other resources directly from the authors. Something simple and neat is hearing the authors pronounce their own name (example: How do you pronounce Guys Read's author, Jon Scieszka?).

They also provide meet-the-author movies, book readings, book guides, book trailers, and more. Unfortunately, it can take a little bit to get logged in. Get the needed info here.

Contemporary Authors Online. Quoted from the site: "Find biographical information on more than 149,000 modern novelists, poets, playwrights, nonfiction writers, journalists and scriptwriters. Sketches typically include personal information, contact information, career history, writings, biographical and critical sources, authors' comments, and informative essays about their lives and work." If working at home, you'll need a password. See Mrs. Sheridan. Hint: this is the singular version of the BrainPop password.

Books and Authors. See Mrs. Sheridan or your teachers for the password. Hint: the singular version of the BrainPop password. This is more focused on helping you find the right book, but it does have a section on author information. I think it might be the same info that you would find in Contemporary Authors Online, though.

Screen Shot 2015-11-03 at 9.08.19 PMBiography in Context is a great tool for finding information about just about anyone. Notice along the top that you can sign in with Google - meaning that you can easily save or email any of the articles you find right to your Google Drive or school email.

Destiny also has a web search - kind of like an educator's Google. I'd suggest using this before going to Google, as a majority of these sites will not be blocked at school, plus, they are all approved by educators. Go to Destiny, and log in, in the upper right corner (this will allow you to save and cite the sites if you want, plus gives you access to password protected sites). The username and password is the same that you use to log in to the computers. Once logged in, on the left side of the page, choose Destiny Discover. Once you are in there, type in your author's name. It will bring up the books that we have by or about that author, but it will also bring up web resources as well. If you choose WebPath Express, that is the "educator's Google" that I mentioned earlier. Otherwise, it also searches other sites and databases, as well, all in one place.
