Research Success @ your Library gr. 7-12

Check out the links for Research Success and the Virtual Library for help with your culminating task projects!

Research Success has tips for each stage of the Research Process and the full MLA and APA citation style guide. It includes tips for note-making, visual organizers, forming a thesis statement and an essay outline. It also has checklists for evaluating information sources.

The Virtual Library is a great resource for on-line lessons and helpful tutorials on how to write a thesis, how to evaluate a blog, a web-site, a wiki, a search engine etc. It is very informative on all aspects of the research process from accessing information to writing the project. Look at the Information Fluency Resources. Also, this library is accessible 24 hrs a day, 7 days a week from the comfort of your own home!
