Our seed is to teach the students how to build a bibliography. These wonderful primary & secondary sources that are being read & analyzed need to be properly referenced for a Reference or Resource page or a Bibliography. Often these referencing skills are not being taught, so it is a perfect time to collaborate with teachers about helping their students learn these skills. We suggest scheduling time to bring a class into the library to learn the basic skills of writing a reference/building a bibliography. Looking at different types of materials for referencing is important (e.g. book, newspaper, journal, website). We suggest using www.easybib.com and also in Google Drive, Tools, Research (which allows footnotes to be imbedded in the text, and the footnote at the bottom of the page).
