Pathfinders are trail guides for research.

Path Finders

We have over 100 Pathfinders for students and teachers to use for projects. Pathfinders are mostly collections of resources designed for specific topics located on the HS Library webpage. Sometimes they are general resources for citing resources is different styles or Internet Library Guides. We create these for anyone that would like them for class research. The pathfinders also are designed to keep research out of the hands of Google and Wikipedia and into the arms of reliable, credible, and authoritative websites.
