To find information about your heroes, we suggest you use the following resources.

  1. The Library Catalogue allows you remote access to our print, digital and streaming resources from anywhere at any time. To access this resource, you’ll simply need your TDSB log-in information. Using this catalogue, you’ll be able to find the Biography for your Heroic Person.
  2. The Canadian Encyclopedia is an excellent source of information for Canadian individuals (or for those with ties to Canada).
  3. JSTOR provides students with a powerful and easy-to-use database for academic pursuit.
  4. The Toronto Star Historic Database, which can be found on the Toronto Public Library’s Website, allows readers to access articles from the newspaper’s archives.

Pantheon.org: A database that can be used to navigate all things mythology.

Fordham University: The Internet Sourcebook has a great deal of documents and manuscripts for all historic periods. This particular link focuses solely on the Ancient Greek world.

The Perseus Project: From TUFTS University, this collection of cultural, historic and literary sources from the Greco-Roman world provides you with excellent material.

For this assignment, you will be using the Chicago school of citation. Remember that includes Footnotes and a Bibliography at the end of the report.

The file discussed with the class for easy access can be found here Chicago Citation at Laurier.

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.
