Looking for Books
SMSD Library Look Up at library.smsd.org to search for book titles in The Library @SMN
Go to www.kslib.info to search the State of Kansas Library databases (You may need to type into a new window if it asks you for a password)
Click on Link "Explore Our Resources"
"Student Resources in Context" is a good place to start in the list of databases
To get to the other databases, click on the top where it says "Resources" or "Gale Databases"
You may search multiple databases, by only selecting the databases you want and searching through the "Find" box at the top of the databases page.
Put in the date you start your research paper and the day it is due, the Assignment Planner will come up with a timeline for you to follow!
