MS Library
The library is open throughout each school day to meet the needs of our students and faculty. Students may receive passes for book selection from their Lynx teachers or by their agenda books. During Lynx, library computers are used primarily for overflow if computer labs are filled.

Students are also scheduled for book selection on a regular basis with their Study Skills classes.

Reference books are overnight and may be renewed with fines of 10 cents for each night overdue. Magazines are five days and may be renewed with fines of 10 cents for each night overdue. All other books circulate for two six day cycles which may be renewed with 5 cent overdue fees.

Informative/Persuasive Presentation

 

Looking for a good idea for your topic?

[This is not for you yet, but rather for a later PERSUASIVE topic: so AVOID/STAY AWAY FROM THIS GREAT SITE. IT IS ONLY FOR PERSUASIVE WRITING/ ALBEIT INTRIGUING / but, if and when, you reach to the Spring of your English  class, try Sirs Knowledge Source.   Click on the link and once on the main screen of Sirs Knowledge Source, click on “More Issues…” in the bottom right of the “PRO VS. CON” box. (username: PL2616H;  password: 19547). Again, this is for more Internet savvy student, and not for the novice student.]

Try Sirs Discoverer in the same link or you can find it in Power Library.  There are several ways to find a topic such as clicking on an icon like “Sports.”  Check out the right side “Topics/subtopics” or  the tabs across the top such as “WebFind Sites.”

Okay, so you’ve chosen your topic.  Where can you find information about it?

We actually house books in the library!  Use the OPAC to find a book about your topic.  We have a great selection on many topics.  (Animal and car topics are always a big hit.)

World Book Online is a great resource. Quick, brief and accurate information will give you a nice overview.  (Remember, there are even videos located in the upper right under IMAGES & VIDEOS – By Title.) (username:  oleyvsd;   password:  lynxsd)

IMDb (Internet Movie Database)

AKC (American Kennel Club)

Dog Breed Info Center


Now you’re ready to do your Bibliography.
