Period 1

Ms. Maharaj – CHV2O1 – Civics & Citizenship

Researching using news sources can be done through the Virtual Library as well as using Google. (Remember to keep track of where you found your information so that formatting your Works Cited list will be a breeze!)

It is crucial to properly reference information that is not your own in order to give credit where it’s due and also to avoid PLAGIARISM. Providing your teacher with a URL for a website used unfortunately will not cut it anymore

Using the following information will put you on the right track to creating a Works Cited list to be proud of!

Below you’ll find the Laurier Guide for MLA Citation.

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.

Databases and Research

  1. The AP Source found HERE provides students with excellent peer-reviewed journals with tools to help organize and cite research. It’s the most powerful database we have.
  2. 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.
  3. We’ll also discuss how to use our Academic Databases and how to find passwords if working virtually.

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.
