APA Citation
This form of citation helps students show the source of their research and is quite simple to accomplish. We’ll talk about how we write a References list together in class and talk about why it’s important to know how to do it properly.

You can download our APA Primer in PDF form Here, or view it below in your browser’s PDF viewer.


Databases and Research

  1. The Library Catalogue provides you with remote access to our digital and streaming media collection. It also allows you to search the print collection to see what books will be available for circulation.
  2. Other sources are easily accessed in the Virtual Library under the yellow FIND tile, such as Teen Health and Wellness. Remember to choose Grades 9-12, All Resources and Health and PE for this assignment.
  3. We’ll also discuss how to use our Academic Databases and how to find passwords if you’re working virtually.
  4. Remember to keep track of any sites that you use so that you can format your References list easily.
