What's happening now? Thank you to all who got out and supported the "Get Jazzed about Reading" bookfair on Monday, March 3, at Barnes and Noble. There's still an opportunity, if you weren't able to attend, to support the WHS library by shopping online through March 7. Check the "Get Jazzed" link for more information!
Announcing eRead Illinois and the 3M Cloud Library!
Research papers will be starting soon for sophomores and seniors. Do not forget 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 or smartphones.
- Make sure you have the citation guide handout. There's a reason Mrs. Letterly calls it her "Dumbo's feather!" Use it 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.
- Do not forget to use your feet and walk to our collections! World history students: This means the resources in the 900s and the 300s (if your topic has a sociological focus, such as women's rights). Do not forget the resources available in the 800s area of both the Nonfiction and Reference collections. Remember the vertical file's resources -- Articles can be photocopied for you for use in your research.
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!
Coming to the library out of resource has changed with these three options:
Sign up in the library BEFORE school.
If you have work to do that requires using online or library resources, get an ASSIGNMENT PASS from either your resource teacher or the teacher giving the assignment. When you are done with your work, you will return to Resource.
If you want to check out a book or magazine, get a CHECKOUT PASS from your resource teacher. When you get the magazine or book, check it out and return to Resource.
Carry your planner!
Not at school? If you have not set up your own accounts, you will need to get the user name(s) and password(s) to access these resources.
Please use this form to schedule time in the library and/or the library computer lab and to ask for equipment. It will be posted to one of the calendars below. Thank you!
Please take time to verify that there is no conflict and to check after you have scheduled to ensure that we have "pencilled" you in.
Resources for Teachers Recommended online resources that include some great video sites.
