Curated Resources for Classes in the Library Today
Welcome to the Library!
Period 2 -ENG3U
Ms. Stagg’s Grade 11 University English class will be coming into the library to complete research on their debate topic and fine-tune their Works Cited lists.
Below you can find resources that will support your research.
As you’ll have to research both sides of the debate, be deliberate about your search terms. Remember that simply typing your question/theme/topic into a search bar will yield middling results. Think about all the synonyms for your search terms and you’ll be able to find excellent resources.
You are being asked to cite your research using MLA. Keep an accurate record of all sources you use and create a Working Works Cited list. This is a list that allows you to add or remove sources so you can ensure the Submitted Works Cited List is accurate. By showing your working Works Cited list to your teacher or to a teacher-librarian, you’ll be able to get ahead of the game and maybe even earn a higher grade.
—————————————————————————————————–The MLA Working File
From Owl Purdue:
Many of you will be using articles that are found within databases so you will need to cite the article and after that, add the database information.
An Article from an Online Database (or Other Electronic Subscription Service)
Cite online databases (e.g. LexisNexis, ProQuest, JSTOR, ScienceDirect) and other subscription services as containers. Thus, provide the title of the database italicized before the DOI or URL. If a DOI is not provided, use the URL instead. Provide the date of access if you wish.
Alonso, Alvaro, and Julio A. Camargo. “Toxicity of Nitrite to Three Species of Freshwater Invertebrates.” Environmental Toxicology, vol. 21, no. 1, 3 Feb. 2006, pp. 90-94. Wiley Online Library, doi:10.1002/tox.20155.
Langhamer, Claire. “Love and Courtship in Mid-Twentieth-Century England.” Historical Journal, vol. 50, no. 1, 2007, pp. 173-96. ProQuest, doi:10.1017/S0018246X06005966. Accessed 27 May 2009.
Periods 3 & 4 – PPL10F
Ms. Savages’s Grade 9 Health Classes will be working on research for their sexual health assignment on STIs/Contraception.
The Virtual Library has several websites that have the information that you are looking for. Remember to use the SEARCH feature, click on Grades 9-12, and your subject which is Health and PE.
For this assignment, you will be using the APA school of citation. Remember that includes a References page or slide at the end of the advertisement.
The file discussed with the class for easy access can be found here The APA Working File.
Remember to look to OWL @ Purdue for other questions that arise about citation. It’s where Ms. Kelso or Ms. Vilicic go when we’re looking for information about citation.
