Praise for the WORLD BOOK WEB


“To address the foibles of students performing research only on Google, World Book has introduced How To Do Research, an online tool offering tutorials to better equip both students and educators with 21st-century information literacy skills. The student section offers a step-by-step tutorial that covers planning research; conducting research in print and online formats including the Internet and Web 2.0 sources such as blogs, podcasts, wikis, and RSS feeds; evaluating sources for such important criteria as currency, authority, and bias; compiling and organizing data including building citations; and presenting research. The educators¹ tutorials, which were developed in consultation with educators who have worked extensively on information literacy projects, cover how to teach research skills. The How To Do Research tools are available free through the World Book Student (formerly World Book Online Reference Center) and World Book Discover sections of the World Book Web suite of online reference products.”


Library Journal, May 2009


“Report card: World Book Web has reached out to teachers and librarians by creating a unique package of products that extends beyond the regular print encyclopedia. Rather than a one-size-fits-all product, World Book Web provides content that meets a wide variety of users within a wide variety of places during their educational years. Through unique presentation options, including World Book Discover, this encyclopedia balances quality information with daily life to provide much more than just a quick reference tool. As an online reference resource that has been a staple in most school libraries, World Book Web has blossomed into a much more interactive and vibrant component. This transformation makes World Book Web an A+ program.”


School Library Journal, November 2008




“This unique resource will be a much-used reference source in most school libraries. Younger users will like the simpler language and abundance of pictures, while teachers will find the helpful teacher resources useful for their curriculum needs. This resource is highly recommended.”

“Developed specifically for children in grades one through four, World Book Kids is a fun way to introduce computer research skills to primary students using a strong, reliable source. When teachers and librarians stress the importance of gathering research through authoritative sources at an early age, out students will become wiser and more efficient researchers producing higher quality products….Highly recommended for students in first through fourth grades.”

Catholic Library World, Sept. 2011



“World Book Student’s depth, relevancy and ease of use make it an outstanding resource for elementary research….The outstanding articles, interactive features, and quality graphic and audio components are precisely what elementary and middle school students need to help them focus their research and find engaging, relevant information. World Book has taken the time to make sure the articles are written at a level appropriate for the intended audience, thus students can easily comprehend the information and need not struggle to read articles written for older students or adults….Highly recommended.”

Catholic Library World, Sept. 2011


“A newly added feature are Lexile measures on selected articles, which will help librarians and teachers ensure that students are reading articles based on their reading level.
