Curated Resources for Classes in the Library Today

Welcome to the Library!

Period 3-PSK4U

Ms. Vieth’s Kinesiology class will be coming in to research a sports role model.

For the research, may I suggest the following links on the Virtual Library?

The Canadian Encyclopedia
The Library’s Databases
Biography.com
The Players’ Tribune

Google might lead you down some useful paths, but for the most part; it can be inefficient. Try looking at associations your chosen person was affiliated with. Look at Professional, National, Regional or Municipal Sports Halls of Fame when looking at individuals associated with Canadian sport. Did you know there’s even a Scarborough Walk of Fame? Even the smaller facilities or halls of fame will include short biographies of these people.

Resources for the PLF4M
