If you already have a Toronto Public Library library card, then you already know that you can borrow books through curbside pickup at your closest branch or borrow ebooks to read online using their Overdrive platform.
If you don’t have a library card for the Public Library, it’s easy to get one online if you live in Toronto by registering for a Digital Access Card.
Welcome back Grade 12 biology students! Your slide presentation needs visuals which in turn need to be cited in APA. In this situation you need to reference the source of the visual and unfortunately stating Google Images as the source will not suffice.
Simply put, you may NOT cite Google. It is a search engine, not a source. You have to dig deeper to cite images that are found through Google.
Here are a couple of short videos that may help you in this process, both of which I have permission to share with you.
The first one is valuable in that it shows where to find images that are free to be used in Google.
The second one shows how to cite images that may or may not have all of the information that you need.
These videos give slightly different information in terms of the placement of the date. The first video shows the date placed immediately after the creator’s name and no mention of the type of image.
The second video shows the creator’s name, the type of work and then the date.
Which one is accurate? The main difference is that the creator’s role (photographer) is mentioned in the second video as well as the type of image [photograph].
Note: if the image does not have a title, describe the image and put that description in square brackets.
Brock University and Simon Fraser University also have included great examples of citing images that you can reference as well.
From Brock U. 7.2: Using Images on Slides
If you use images, such as photographs or clipart, on your slides, you should also credit the source of the image. Do not reproduce images without permission. There are sources for clipart and images that are “public use” according to Creative Commons licensing such as:
Photographs are treated as figures in APA Style. Therefore, the citation for the source of the image is included as a footnote in the figure caption underneath the photograph which includes the figure number and a description. The source of the image obtained is attributed using the following model:
Figure 1. Blah blah blah. From Title of Image, by Author, Year. Retrieved from URL.
Another option for citing image sources is to create a separate slide titled “Photo credits” or “Image Sources”. For more assistance on the various ways to cite images in presentations (but not necessarily in APA format), see:
How to credit photos (Photoshare.org). Provides examples of various ways to credit image sources in Powerpoint, on webpages, and in print materials.
For more assistance in creating figures in APA Style, see the following sections & pages of the Publication Manual, 6th edition:
2.12 Footnotes (pages 37 -38)
5.20 – 5.25 Figures (pages 150 – 167)
Now that you know what you’re looking for, there are lots of places to look for images or illustrations for this assignment that are covered by Creative Common licenses which means that you can share and edit the material as long as you give appropriate credit.
Today you will be looking at a variety of sources while researching your chosen topics. Some of those sources should include….
The Virtual Library’s Educator Resources are used by Teachers when they need to do related research in the field of education. Seems like a solid place to go….. Use the different databases found here and be sure to keep a record of each source as it’ll make citation far easier.
The Advanced Placement Source also provides elite-level access to a high-achieving academic database. With access to thousands of peer-reviewed journals and other academically viable sources of research, the AP Source should be used heavily in your research. Login and Password for the AP Source can be found on theVirtual Library Home Page in the orange passwords and info icon.
Passwords can be found in your student agenda or on the Learnmarks provided to your Homeform in September.

Teen Health and Wellness is a database in the Virtual Library that focuses on issues relevant to teens such as bullying and academic anxiety.
The Internet is an acceptable place to search as long as you are looking for reputable websites that often end in .org, .edu, .com, .gov., .ca, .on. Canadian newspapers such asThe Toronto Star & The Globe and Mail report on local and national education issues as well. Other sources include local teacher union websites such as OSSTF (secondary) and EFTO(elementary) Jennifer Brown, as the current ETT President, has written many articles about the status of education as well. The Conversation is also a hub for education issues. EDCAN.ca is another source of information on current educational issues.
For your annotated bibliography, you will be using the APA school of citation.
Here are some common examples of what that should look like.
Welcome to Laurier’s Library website! This is a great place for resources that you may need this year and next.
IB expects that you will reference any material that is not your own. In the case of the Math Exploration/IA, you may be referencing articles, studies, research done by others, images, charts, graphs, etc.
APA is the formatting style that you should use for Math. However IB will accept MLA or Chicago as long as whichever format you use, you remain consistent throughout.
The following links are here to help guide you in this process.
Today we’re going to look at some databases within the TDSB’s Virtual Libraryfor your peer-reviewed articles.
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 & Info icon in the Virtual Library.
We will also review APA referencing as you will need to cite your source for your article. Please reference the following document for examples, specifically on page 2. OWL Purdue is also another good source for reference help.
Watch the following videos for help in referencing your visuals in APA format. The following 2 videos give good overviews of 1) sourcing images that are free to be reproduced and 2) what to do if you do not have all the information you need. From Charles Darwin University: Using and Referencing Images in APA From Humber College Library: APA 6th in Minutes: Online images
You should make sure that you are able to reference whatever image you are using and that may take some careful searching within websites for the creator of the image.
We also recommend Gale in Context-Global Issues, an excellent database found in the Virtual Library. It is particularly good for this assignment because you can access Canadian news articles. Because you are accessing it from home, you will need to make sure that you are logged into AW, and use the following login/password: trillium/trillium.
You will be creating a Bibliography in Chicago Style and it’s helpful if you have some examples to look at. We have created a guide for you to use and also recommend OWLPurdue if you would like an online source that is trustworthy.
Remember that with any citation for any class, your teacher’s instructions will be the ones to follow.
Before you can access the database list, click on the yellow FIND tile and remember to indicate that you’re in Gr 9-12. These databases are password protected when you are accessing them from home. You will need to be logged into AW first and use the user id/password, trillium/trillium to access most of the databases. Infobase e-books (see below) id/password iselem/elem.
The Library Catalogue will also will allow you remote access to our Electronic and Streaming Media/Video Collection.
As always, remember to keep track of where you found your information by the website or database name and the title of the article/information so that you can properly cite/format it for the assignment using APA.
For Science assignments, you probably remember that you will be using the APA school of citation. Follow Ms. Lane’s instructions regarding citing your sources. She does not require a Reference List at the end of your work. Your teacher is the BOSS of how you give credit to your resources. Make sure you follow her instructions, using the Online Research Notes form.
You will likely want to use pictures or images in the presentation of your species and we would recommend using websites that do not require a citation, if possible. Here are two good sites for free stock photos:
