**NOTE:  Before you print you must either:

 

1) Highlight what you want on the webpage, go to “File” and “Print,” click the circle next to “Selection,” then “Print.”  OR

 

2)  Copy and paste to a Word document (to find “Word,” go to “Start” and choose “Programs.”  “MS Office” is where “Word” can be found.)   Once you have the information copied and pasted to the Word Document, you can change the size of the font to a smaller size (On the Word Document go to "Edit" then "Select All."  Click the arrow next to the font size number at the top and change the number to 10 or 8 if you can read text that small.)  OR

 

3) If you are in a database (Gale, EBSCO, Salem History etc.) use the “printer friendly” icon and you don’t have to copy and paste.

 

 

Searching Tips:

  1. Do not use the numeral “1” when searching for rulers.  Use “i”
  2. Use short phrases or single words, i.e. “elizabeth i”
  3. Use quotation marks around phrases with two or more words, i.e. “julius caesar” or “william shakespeare” or "elizabethan england"
  4. Use the Advanced Search tool when it will help you.
  5. To find the MLA source citation in the databases, look for words like “cite,” or “citation.”  In Gale’s Discovering Collection, see “Source Citation” at the bottom of the screen.
  6. When writing citations, if your teacher approves, you only have to write down the citation THROUGH .COM.  You don’t need all the numbers and letters at the end.
