We have plenty of print materials to use for research in the library, but you may need to do work at home as well. We have two online databases available for school and home use:
This database is actually five databases available on one site!
You have access to:
- eLibrary Curriculum Edition
- History Study Center
- ProQuest Learning: Literature
- SIRS Knowledge Source
This is an online encyclopedia, so you will get basic information. Be sure to use the Advanced option, as it is the high school version.
This is an amazing resource of reference materials. You have access to over 400 reference titles and thousands of images and videos.
Don’t forget about our TVHS Library Catalog!
**And once you have done your research, you need to cite your sources!
Whenever you borrow an idea, thought, image, word, song, or anything else not yours from a source you are using for research, you must give credit to the source from which you borrowed the information.
You can use the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) to learn more about citing sources.
Did you borrow an image? Check out this resource for citing your images: Image Citations for Class Projects
And here is some additional information and an example for your Bibliography, AKA, Works Cited Page.
