WebPath Express – a better way to search than Google

Use WebPath Express to search educator-approved websites, then focus the results by grade-level and lexile! You do NOT need to be logged in to the library website to use, and it’s accessible by everyone…students, parents, teachers, etc. I’ve attached directions for you to try it out, and have so far shown grades 3-5 how to use it. Let me know if you would like me to come into any classrooms to work on this!

Library – a quiet place to study

The library will be a “quiet zone” for the next two weeks, with computers and phones to be used for educational purposes only and noisy conversations to be held elsewhere. The quiet zone begins Monday!

EE and PP students – Reference reminders!

  1. Make sure every reference in your reference list is matched somewhere in your paper, either in sentence form or in-text citation. If it’s not in your paper, it shouldn’t be on your Reference List.
  2. The IB requires that you add the access date for all online references…you will need to do this manually! Here is an example:

Bratton, K. (2018, January 3). Where have all the flowers gone? Bayside High News, p. 4. Retrieved on August 23, 2018, from


Stop by the library with questions or see you Thursdays at our EE/PP Support Sessions!
