Curated Resources for Classes in the Library Today

Welcome to the Library!

Period 2 – CLN4U

Ms. Gaudette’s Grade 12 Law class will be coming to the Library to work on their culminating presentation.
A PDF of your assignment is found below.


Ms. Gaudette recommends using Amnesty International‘s website as a good starting point for research.

To access some quality print and media resources, use our Catalogue; found on the Virtual Library. The Catalogue also provides you access to streaming video and other electronic resources. When off site,  you’ll need to log in with your TDSB information.

Resources for the CLN4U

Remember that simply typing your 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 will be using the 17th updated version of the Chicago Manual of Style.

Yes, there is now a 17th Edition. Which means the old PDF or printout you’ve used in the past is now obsolete. You are welcome to take it out of your binder and (safely and neatly) throw it into the Blue Bin.

The new file can be found right here at Chicago Citation at Laurier.

The basics are unchanged, but we feel that this new resource will provide you with a thorough overview of the expectations laid out by the 17th Edition of the Chicago Manual of Style.

Look at this slide show for basics on how/where/when to use the Footnotes.

Here is an example essay file called From the dawn of time where you see how footnotes work.

You may also be using pictures and videos and therefore you will need to cite them as well. When in doubt remember that OWL Purdue is a great resource.
