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.
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)
Artsy.net (for buyers-check their open access images/Download Image Tool)The-MLA-Working-File
We also use OWL Purdue as an additional resource for all citation needs.
