EREADING RESOURCES FOR YOU -- Aren't sure about accessing? Just ask!
Free e-Reading for Teens by bestselling YA authors
When research projects are assigned, you will want to:
- Get your accounts set up for the library catalog and Ebsco Databases, so you can easily access these valuable resources not only from school, but also from your home and smartphones.
- Make sure you have the citation guide handout. There's a reason Mrs. Letterly calls it her "Dumbo's feather!" Use it as a quick guide to create your working and annotated bibliographies and to double-check citations you've created using the EbscoDatabases' citations or the Son of Citation's Machine.
- Use your feet and walk to our collections! World history and American history students: This means the resources in the 900s and the 300s (if your topic has a sociological focus, such as women's rights). Make use of interlibrary loan.
- Remember, if you are struggling to complete part of the requirements for the paper, ASK FOR HELP! Your teachers and your library staff have been at this a lot longer than you and may have good advice.
Son of Citation s Machine -- MLA format, 7th ed.
Son of Citation Machine -- APA format, 6th ed.
REMEMBER: Always check to make sure your citations match the requirements set by your teacher(s)!
Questions? ASK your librarian.
You will want to know this before coming to the library from your Resource:
Sign up with your Resource teacher. Because no more than half the class can come to the library out of any Resource, you will want to know the following:
If you have work to do that requires using online or library resources, get an ASSIGNMENT PASS from the teacher giving the assignment. This gives you first priority.
You can sign up, get homework done in Resource and come to the library later on a pass, so long as there are more than 10 minutes left in the hour.
Carry your planner!
Not at school? If you have not set up your own accounts, you will need to get the school's generic user name(s) and password(s) to access these resources.
