Above is a link to the library website where you can find information about the library. This is also where student resources and databases are located. Also on the library website you will notice a google form to reserve both the computer lab and laptop carts. Under the teacher resources tab there is a google calendar for you to plan ahead with the carts and lab.
INFOhio has once again changed many of it's databases. If you use the databases frequently be sure to check out the website. A new resource offered on INFOhio is iSearch where you can search all the databases in one location. INFOhio also offers free professional development webinars to educators. They currently offer webinars each week that last an hour and can count towards CEUs. You can also watch previously recorded webinars and still get a certificate.
We offer subscriptions to Easy Bib, Science Online and Issues and Controversies. Easy Bib is very helpful when doing any kind of citing. The students can create an account and create bibliographies for their research. They can also organize their paper into notecards and then create an outline. If you would like me to get the students started by doing an Easy Bib lesson, please feel free to contact me.
We offer several ebooks for students and staff to checkout. You can click on OVERDRIVE above and it will take you to our ebook collection. You will have to login. The teacher's login is (username: email password: 14ram). The student login is (username: four digit lunch code password: ghs).
We are very fortunate to have great library assistance from our public library. As the year progresses if our library does not have something you need, please contact the library in Jamestown and they will be more than happy to help you. Please encourage your students to get a library card. The public library has numerous resources and many ebooks. If you are planning a project don't hesitate to call the library and give them a heads up. They will pull materials for students ahead of time.
I have AP flashcards for Chemistry, Government, Biology, Calculus and Spanish. I also have practice test exam books for AP Biology, Chemistry, Calculus, Language Arts, Government, United States History, Music Theory, and Spanish. Please encourage your students to use them to their benefit.
