High School Students, Teachers, and Librarians

Welcome to the ODU Libraries Research Guide for High School Students.

This guide is intended for high school students, teachers, and school librarians who are interested in visiting or accessing resources at the ODU Libraries. The ODU Libraries are happy to collaborate with and support our schools and school libraries.

Please contact Lucy Wittkower, Head of Teaching & Learning Initiatives at if you are interested in bringing a group to visit Perry Library or need assistance with anything else. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently not hosting school groups. However, we are still here to help you virtually! This guide contains information on how to access free materials online via the ODU Libraries, your local public libraries, and how to access materials that are freely available online.
