To access the BPL databases and eBooks for this project, you must have a physical Boston Public Library card OR a BPL eCard number.
If you have a physical Boston Public Library card, then do not sign up for an eCard. Instead, check with one of our librarians about how to proceed.
TO GET A BOSTON PUBLIC LIBRARY ECARD:
Click here to sign up. Write down or remember your PIN.
Check your email for your BPL number.
Use the BPL eCard number and PIN to sign in and use the databases.
Note about databases and eBooks: Most entries provide a formatted citation, usually at the end of the article. Unfortunately, Health & Wellness Resource Center does not always provide a formatted citation (in which case use one of the above generators to create one).
Use the SCRAP Test to check any websites before using them.
After using this tool, if you are still unsure of a site’s reliability, then check with your teacher or the librarians.
