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.Generic book spines forming a spiral.

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, textemail, or in person for assistance in using our databases and eBooks.
