MHS Library's New Website - LibGuides

MHS Library's New Website - LibGuides | MHS Library - Jan. 2013 Newsletter | Scoop.it
Created to help you with your homework, class projects, and more. Find links to databases,books, websites, and other helpful tools.
Maia Hajj's insight:
The library has a new website! You can access it from the high school website by clicking on MHS Library under high school links or you can use mhslibrary.marbleheadschools.org/home.

 

The website has links to the library's catalog, subscription databases, ebooks, and more. Coming shortly will be a section for teacher resources that will contain links to professional online resources. Know a good website that you want to share with others? Tell me about it and I will add it to the page.

 

With this site, I can create customized research guides to help your students with their projects. These guides are organized by subject. I have already created some for English and science. Click on the subject tab and then click on a guide's title to see examples.

 

Email me or come by the library if you have questions or want to know more about it.

Maia Hajj's insight:

Have students that are readers? Have students that you want to inspire to read? Encourage them to try e-books and audiobooks now availabe through the library's website.

 

Thanks to a grant from the Friends of the Marblehead Public Schools, the library is piloting an ebook service this year for the first time. The service is available to all freshman and sophomore students and can be accessed from the library's website.
