Google Scholar (

Stand on the shoulders of Giants!!!   

 When you access Google Scholar you can rest assured you are only viewing the best sources with no complaints from your English teachers here at Grant. Citing Wikipedia or Buzzfeed isn't going to cut it in academia, ask any of our English teachers. Wikipedia is a great place to begin a search, often get a great overview of a subject and then dig deeper and follow up on the resource links always provided throughout the article and sources cited at the end. The great advantage of Google Scholar is that it filters through the web's clutter and targets peer-reviewed and research-based articles, primarily come from journals, papers, and other sources more likely to win your professor's approval. 

     You can even create a Google Scholar Library to save searches, retrieve previous discoveries, and search the full text of found reports. Create a Scholar Profile to track citations to your own publications and have greater control over references to your content.

Internet Public Library

     Internet Public Library is like Librarian 2.0 Thankfully public libraries in Sacramento are appreciated and it's hard to imagine a successful student surviving and thriving four years in high school without a public library card. But we realize a student can't always get to a public library and the school library is only open during the school day so what are your alternatives?

     Have you heard of the Internet Public Library?. It's an excellent search engine for academic-focused content, serving up links to university-, government-, and research-based organizations. In the pre-Internet dark ages, a sage known as the librarian guided you through the caverns of paper-based resources, and now can guide you to both online and print resources. The Internet Public Library has a modern take: You can fill out a form requesting assistance for a specific subject. A member of the IPL staff will email you an answer. Nifty! There's even a section especially for teens, try it out!!!

First Recommended MLA Site

Purdue OWL will help anyone with formatting papers

     Purdue's Online Writing Lab, known as OWL, is an essential formatting resource for research papers, regardless of which college you attend. It breaks down all the nitty-gritty formatting details you need to know, offers general writing and article construction tips, and has a Google-powered search engine to help you sniff out specific tutorials.

     Many of the sections provide multiple examples and visuals for how to get the formatting right—an especially helpful touch. The examples and support articles paint an easy-to-follow picture of what the final result should look like.  This site was formally under the MLA Links section, but with the emphasis placed on OWL by Ms. Troxler we have moved it front and center.

Time Magazine's Most influential People - The Top 100

Then you can click on each link to an article about that person. Quite a diverse list and reading several of the articles could be illuminating in providing some context on what it means to be an individual in society in 2011!
