I am excited about you visiting the library next week. Here is some information that you will need for our visit.
You will be starting a research assignment and you will be using the following:
Gale, Ebsco, Discovery, Proquest, Brain Pop and Worldbook. When you use the resources at home or away from campus, you will need usernames and passwords. They can be found on the handout your parents received at open house or on the book mark attached to the desk top monitors in the library.
The Library Activity Sheet is a guide for gathering information and planning what you do when you visit the library. The activity sheet is based on Big 6 Research. I will assist you with your assignments. That is the job for which I am qualified. See the avatar on the web site to find out more about those qualifications.
Always have the activity sheet and a blue pass when you visit the library during class time. This sheet has been emailed to your teachers, placed in their mail boxes, and it is on the school's server in the common folder where they store their lesson plans.
If you visit the library during lunch or after school, meet me in the cafeteria. You may bring lunch and snacks.
You can also receive more information if you follow us on Twitter @ YatesLibrary.
...not only because she first taught in Houston or is a certified librarian. Not even because she is a Longhorn. But, because she, as the First Lady of Texas is responsible for the Texas Book Festival and as the Nation's First Lady, the National Book Festival! This past weekend, I attended the TexBKFest in Austin and met quite a few authors and of course purchased a gazillion books. I even met Dan Rather! I shall post pictures later.
