Welcome to the Library, Ms. Stewart’s Grade 11/12 Visual Arts class! You’re here today to review good research strategies and how to cite your resources in MLA format.

Within the Virtual Library  there are a few databases that we can use to search information that we count as 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 & Info icon in the Virtual Library.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is passwords-info-image-2.png
You’ll see this at the top of the Virtual Library page.



Global Issues in Context is one of them. (password is trillium if you’re already logged into AW)

Encyclopedia Britannica is another one. (login is trillium/trillium)

Advanced Placement Source (AP Source) is also good. (login is tdsb/trillium20!)

There are some other websites that I came across that are reliable sources of information.
OAEA (Ontario Art Education Association) (a form of Internet search engine/tool, browse for artists & art movements and see personal image use in museums & galleries)

AGO (for Canadian artists) (for buyers-check their open access images/Download Image Tool)


We also use OWL Purdue as an additional resource for all citation needs.
