Expanded Coverage of Financial Literacy, Green Living, Sexual Health
Teen Health & Wellness is excited to announce the addition of new "hot topic" content areas, including financial literacy and green living. The database tackles these urgent issues by offering expanded coverage of financial literacy and green/environmentally friendly living as well as additional articles on sexual health and disease prevention. New entries cover topical issues such as credit cards, bank accounts, recycling, fair trade, pelvic inflammatory disease, and fertility. As teens turn to libraries in even greater numbers for comprehensive, accessible information on these critical topics, Teen Health & Wellness meets this vital community need.
New Search Widget
Teen Health & Wellness announces an exciting new way to promote the database on your library Web site: Our new search widget. The widget lets your teen users search the database from any page of your site. Post it on your library Web site to get the most out of your Teen Health & Wellness subscription⎯and make sure your teens know where to find trusted, credible health information 24/7.

Sue Polanka, Head of Reference, Wright State University and Chair, Editorial Board, Reference Books Bulletin says on her No Shelf Required blog:
"Wow, this is what I call a reference experience! ... Besides the amazing amount of information in the Teen Health & Wellness database, teens have the opportunity to ask questions, write/share their own feelings, and find out how other teens are dealing with situations. The RSS feeds, polls, and Q/A make this interactive. The attention to detail in citing, writing, reviewing, and updating make the information very authoritative. This should be in every household, not just school."
