We encourage elementary and high school students to visit
their local school or public
libraries for assistance in completing their classroom
and homework assignments. In most cases, the information
needed to complete these assignments is not available on
the free Internet. Because the Library of Congress does
not loan materials to individuals, and because most of our
collections (except for the American
Memory project) aren't available online, our ability
to help students with their assignments is limited. However,
most local school and public libraries will have reference
librarians, books, magazines, online databases, and other
resources to assist students with their schoolwork.
Students seeking online assistance for their schoolwork
may visit these websites:
Pinchbeck's Homework Helper:
Directory of free educational sites; students can post questions
to an online bulletin board.
Spot: Directory of free educational sites,
organized by grade level and subject, with a list of frequently
asked questions ("You Asked For It").
(Internet Public Library): Links to online resources
in science, history, and other topics. Students can email
an "Ask a Question" service, which often refers
students back to their local libraries.
