1. Check all DATABASES & eBooks, available from the LRC's webpage 24/7.
2. Check the LRC's catalog (also available 24/7) for books.
The Providence St. Mel LRC provides a good basic collection of print and electronic sources.
IF your topic is very current or very local or specialized, or if there are not enough print sources available for all your students, you may request a hotlist. A hotlist is a custom-made list of research-worthy websites created by a librarian upon a teacher's request. If you would like to discuss research tools available for a class project, please make an appointment with Ms. Akers asap!
