I am pleased to announce that the regular Explore Our Resources page has been joined by two new database pages, created with students in mind. If you take a look at the State Library’s homepage ( http://www.kslib.info/), you will see the links to those pages in the yellow “Find” box.
Research for Kids was created for elementary school students. Just a few resources, with nice big icons to click on, and a lot of reinforcement to ask your librarian for help!
Student Research Central is geared towards students middle school and older. Made in the same template as the original Explore Our Resources, we have pulled out sub-databases of Academic OneFile such as LegalTrac, World History Collection, and the Vocations & Careers Collection. Hopefully this will make it easier for students to find relevant information.
You will also see the State Library’s new logo at the top of both of these pages. Clicking on the logo will return you to the homepage.
Let me know if you have any questions!
