Research Pathfinders

A PATHFINDER is a guide to locating a range of suitable resources that may be print and nonprint (online) resources. It guides students and teachers through these resources for a specific subject area or topic to achieve a successful learning outcome.

And most importantly, a pathfinder is just the beginning in your research journey! If you use a pathfinder like a map it will help you through the journey and lead you to great resources along the way.

On the Van Meter Library Pathfinder Wiki, you will find various pathfinders about different topics, themes, and subjects. As pathfinders are created, they will be added to the wiki.  

Please let Mrs. Miller if you have any questions or need help using the pathfinders. Her email is or leave a comment on the wiki.

Have fun with your research! :)
