Academic Research with MPC and TPL, FTW!

Finding scholarly articles that are accessible and usable can be a challenge, but your MPC library’s got you.

  1. Pick up a bookmark with passwords (or follow links to them on the TDSB library site) and explore Advanced Placement Database on the TDSB Virtual Library (Click Search A-Z Databases).  Remember to narrow your search to “Full Text” and “Peer-Reviewed.”
  2. Get out your Toronto Public Library card and head over to J-Stor,  a huge database of archived and almost-new academic resources.  Use the same search limitations and play with your search modifiers in the “Advanced Search” option.
  3. Cite it all!  Most databases have a citation formulated for you, so you can simply copy and paste it into your Works Cited list.  Use OWL Purdue to keep your APA citation style on point, and you’re well on your way to researching like a pro!
