Mackin Via and Easybib for Research

There has been research going on in all grades this semester! As I work with students, I have encouraged them to focus on using databases. Frisco ISD and the state of Texas work towards bringing many of these to the students free of charge.

I have also been working with the students on using Easybib for their citation pages. This is a free website that will help the students. Recently all of 6th grade created their own accounts that are connected to their Google accounts.

Audiobooks

There are two places that students can find audiobooks:

  • Overdrive
  • MackinVia

Many of the students have been wondering about where Trent's audiobooks are. They are used to seeing them in CD form or a MP3 player. When Trent opened, we did not have any audiobooks. Frisco ISD allows the opening librarian to order them based on the need of our campus.

After talking with students and other librarians, I decided not to have physical audiobooks in the library. Most students do not use CD players anymore, and the MP3 players only last about 2 years on average and are expensive to replace. So I have decided to use MackinVia. Before the winter break, I order almost 200 audiobooks through MackinVia for the students. This is different then Overdrive in that ONLY Trent students can check out these audiobooks.
