The School Library Program offers many choices in terms of reading material and sources of information for research. One of the areas that many students (and staff) should check out more often is Periodicals. We have regular subscriptions to a wide variety of magazines. We also pick up other magazine titles on a more casual basis. And we have a daily subscription to both the Vancouver Sun and the Province.
More than that, through our district sponsored online resources, we offer you access to thousands of different newspapers, magazines, journals and more. We have created a short tutorial on how to use one of these databases to find current articles. Click here.
Are you working on a project and need to do research using current sources, from Canada or other parts of the world? Be sure to check out Ebsco’s Academic Search Premier and the many other Digital Resources that you can use as a student in the Surrey School District.
If you are linking to these subscription databases from within the district, you can go directly there. However, if you are trying from home, you will need a username and password. See us in the school library to get those.
If you need more help on using these resources, check out this tutorial.
Not everything can be linked to from Google. One of the big myths about online information is that everything is free and easy to find on the internet / world wide web. Many things are only available if you have proper access, including paid sites with usernames and passwords.
The good news is that as a student of Surrey Schools, you can use subscription databases that SD36 has paid for.
