Canadian Student Research Centre

This database is perfect for all your research needs: enter a broad search, narrow by publication or subject, and you’ve got yourself some really useful resources!  This database, also known as the Canadian Reference Centre, is huge.  From their site:

Canadian Reference Centre combines Canadian magazines, newspapers, newswires and reference books to create the largest collection of regional full text content available to Canadian libraries. This database includes leading Canadian periodicals and international (U.S. and U.K) periodicals in full text; full text reference books; over 87,900 full text biographies and an Image Collection of over 502,000 photos, maps, and flags. This database is updated on a daily basis.

Click here to access it from school.  If you are at home, make sure you have the Virtual Library passwords from the library.

Tuesday morning in the library

A beautiful fall day, full of possibilities.  What possibilities, you ask?  Why, let me supply you with a list:

Possibility #1: Celebrating your love of anime and manga with other fan-girls and -boys this afternoon in the library.  The Anime Club meets every Tuesday without fail.

Possibility #2: Learning or teaching a craft at our Crafter’s Guild.  Come by the library to chat with Ms Green about this today, or just come out to our first meeting next Monday after school.

Possibility #3: Reading a new book!  We’re in the midst of processing new comics, non-fiction and novels for your enjoyment.  Check them out!  Also, if you don’t see what you want, fill out a request in our Suggestions Binder.

Possibility #4: Getting help from a teacher.  We’ve just added a page on our site called Sites by MPC Teachers to connect students with the great websites MPC staff have made.

Let’s hope one of these possibilities appeals to you. Visit us in the library, then for goodness sake, get out there and enjoy this sunshine!
