Welcome to the Library and Learning Commons!


Ms. Jackson’s Grade 10 History class will be researching for their essay on the 1920s as well as reviewing the basics of using Chicago style of Citation.

Within the Virtual Library there are a few databases that we can use to search information that we consider trustworthy and reliable.

Remember that the databases are password-protected and some of the passwords have changed since last year. You will need to be logged into AW to access these resources. Look for the orange Passwords and Info icon at the top of the Virtual Library home page.

In the Virtual Library, you’ll use the yellow FIND tile to search in the Subject Resource Find Table.

First, input your Grade: 9-12,
next, under Resource Type select All Resources
and last, under Subject, choose History from the dropdown menu. This will bring you to databases and websites that are TDSB-approved.

You may also look at resources in the Subject Guides, under Social Studies, History and Geography, Grade 10 under the appropriate timeframe that includes the 1920s.

It is crucial to properly reference information that is not your own in order to give credit where it’s due and also to avoid PLAGIARISM. Providing your teacher with a URL for a website used unfortunately will not cut it anymore

Using the following information will put you on the right track to creating a bibliography to be proud of! (Remember to keep track of where you found your information so that formatting your bibliography will be a breeze!)

Below you’ll find the Laurier Guide for Chicago Citation.


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.
