For articles on health, try the online Health Reference Center, an index to magazines and newspaper articles. Some of these articles will be available on screen; some are in magazines here at the library; others can be sent for if you have time to wait a few days. Be sure to print out all of the information about any articles you want help finding.

How to get there from a Library Internet station:

1) Go to the Waltham Public Libraryís home page (Click "Home").
2) Click on "Electronic Resources - In Library" or Periodical & Reference Databases."
3) Select "General Reference Center."
4) Type in the topic you are looking for (such as "quilting" or "origami").

For articles in Spanish, try Salud Para Todos. This is listed under 'Databases provided by the Waltham Public Library.'
