The Canadian Encyclopedia – This thorough collection of resources covers pretty much every topic you’d want to research in Canadian history. Remember to use alternate search terms to find more resources. Also look in associated links of each article to find related information.

In terms of popular culture and photos/videos/song; CBC Curio would be a great source as well.

Canada: A Country by Consent was created by Canadian Historians who were wanted Canadian-Content created by Canadian writers. It has articles about the major events of Canadian history.

The CBC archives provides you with access to thousands of audio clips and video clips that are easy to integrate into your presentation.

The Library Catalogue

The Catalogue will also will allow you on-site and remote access to our Print, Electronic and Streaming Video Collection. You can also access the CBC archives through this portal, which has a great deal of resources.

Citation

For this assignment, you will be using the Chicago school of citation. Today, we will talk about how to generate a Bibliography.

Remember to look to OWL @ Purdue for other questions that arise about citation. It’s where Mr. Kosowan or Ms. Vilicic go when we’re looking for information about citation.
