 Free Research Service Use Policy

The free research service offered to subscribers is our way of trying to ensure that WebLinks meets the needs of a large number of students, teachers and teacher-librarians and that we provide resources to support the national curriculum topics.

Although the LinksPlus-WebLinks database is a quality assured database of resources for student use, the free research service is not intended to be an individual research project help service. Instead, it is intended to improve the relevance of our database for all students studying the national curriculum. Students undertaking individual research projects/assignments should seek guidance from their teachers if having research difficulties. Free research requests should be sent via the teacher or teacher-librarian, and should be specifically related to national curriculum topics rather than individual student (teacher assessed) projects. 

Promotional material


There are WebLinks Online posters and user guides available to help raise awareness of the services you subscribe to in your library or across your school campus.

Posters highlighting the advantages of using our online services can be displayed near computers or in classrooms.
