Welcome to the Library, Ms. Lane’s Grade 10 Science class!  You’re here to do research for your Climate Change Speech Assignment.

We recommend the Virtual Library for databases as well as the Library Catalogue for a variety of media pieces.

Check out the TDSB’s Climate Change Hub, particularly the Citizenship tab for lots of useful links.

Global Issues in ContextScience Reference Centre and Canadian Points of View are all great places to find a variety of news articles as well as journal articles.

Remember to select your grade, 9-12, when searching for these databases. The login  for Gale in Context-Global Issues is trillium. The login/password for the other databases is tdsb/trillium20!

You will need to keep track of your resources as you research so that you are able to format them properly in APA. Check the examples below.

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.
