Finding Good, Current Sources
    • No matter what the copyright date of the website is, check the dates on the references and sources listed for the information. The website might have been updated recently, but that doesn't mean that the sources are current. 
  • Use search operators to narrow your search faster! Below are examples of Google search operators. If you prefer another search engine, the operators might be slightly different, so check their support pages and search tools.
    • "medical marijuana" gets you pages with that exact phrase - not just those two words separately
    • 2014..2019 gets you websites that mention any number between 2014 and 2019
    • site:.gov gets you results only from websites with .gov somewhere in the URL.
    • -juul eliminates pages with a result you aren't looking for (useful if your topic has a few different angles, and you're only looking at one)
    • You can get fancy with this by combining search operators in one search, too!
Citing Your Sources
  • Go to the Citation Help tab above for guides and more resources. Remember, you need to cite everything you use - pictures are information, too, since they help to communicate with your audience. (And find the actual source of images you find using Google!)

Here are a few government websites to get you started:

April 11 Book Club Meeting: Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones

Book Club will be discussing Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones on Thursday, April 11 If you need a copy of the book, talk to Ms. Charpentier or visit the Uxbridge Free Public Library.

From Goodreads: "Sophie has the great misfortune of being the eldest of three daughters, destined to fail miserably should she ever leave home to seek her fate. But when she unwittingly attracts the ire of the Witch of the Waste, Sophie finds herself under a horrid spell that transforms her into an old lady. Her only chance at breaking it lies in the ever-moving castle in the hills: the Wizard Howl's castle. To untangle the enchantment, Sophie must handle the heartless Howl, strike a bargain with a fire demon, and meet the Witch of the Waste head-on. Along the way, she discovers that there's far more to Howl—and herself—than first meets the eye."

Also join us at all Book Club's last meeting this semester to discuss Blood Water Paint by Joy McCullough on Thursday, May 9.
