Created especially for Upper Arlington High School students by the reference librarians, the UAHS Student Portal is where to find links to online resources perfect for school research papers and projects.
The librarians narrowed down our extensive list of online resources and organized them by categories relevant to high school students, such as Literature and Language, Science and Math, College Prep, and more.
Easily discover databases and eBooks with information from encyclopedias, magazines, newspapers, professional journals and other sources appropriate for school work. Many of these resources even tell you how to cite what you found! Best of all, they are all available any time of day.
You will need your UA library card number and PIN to access the valuable resources found through the UAHS Student Portal. And don’t forget, you can always contact a Reference Librarian by phone, text, email, or in person for assistance in using our databases and eBooks.

Mr. Rosenblum Dreams in English by Natasha Solomons
Mr. Rosenblum is a Jewish refugee who fled to England from Germany before the outbreak of WWII. He longs to be accepted as a true Englishman. As a profitable businessman, he buys the correct Savile Row suit, a Jaguar, and shops at Fortnum & Mason. But his Jewish background prevents his membership into a golf club, for him the ultimate sign of an English gentleman. In desperation he decides to build his own golf course which proves to be a greater endeavor than anticipated. The character is exasperating at times, but heartwarming overall, especially when you learn the author is writing about her grandfather.
