    * Some of the databases require a username and/or password when away from school.  We have these posted in the WBHS Library Blackboard Organization. Choose the Content link, then click on the Database folder and the username and passwords are posted under the individual databases.*

    The Gale Power Search tool searches ALL the Gale databases we subscribe to at one time! (Academic OneFile, High School in Context, World History in Context) If you want to search for an individual Gale database, they are listed below.
