As we move forward through January, it is hard to believe that the first semester is almost over! This is the home stretch friends! As we get ready for culminating projects and exams, we remind you that we are here to help. If you need help with research or citation, please do not hesitate to come in to Ask the Librarian. Remember: proper citation is important! Don't get caught losing marks for improper citation when there are so many tools available.
Also, when doing online research don’t forget about the many databases available to you through our online library at www.hcdsb.org under the STUDENTS tab.
Why Use Online Databases?
- Available 24/7 from any computer with Internet access.
- More trustworthy than websites. Work smarter not harder.
- Subject specific, making it easier for you to find the information needed for a certain project or assignment.
And who could forget about the books? You may have noticed that the shelves are filling up. Why not check out some of the new releases to unwind after all of the work is done?
A Learning Commons should be a very busy place. Students could be taking quizzes, writing tests, studying for an exam or trying to conduct research. It is important for us to use this multipurpose space with respect to all of its users. See you in the Commons!
