Using This LibGuide

This is your homepage for your research on Bullying.  On the left you'll see links to the databases  that should contain information on your topic. Remember, usernames and passwords are listed in your assignment notebook. 

In the box below, you'll see links to the online catalog where you can look for books we have on your topic. From the Atriuum homepage, you can either search for your topic or go to the List to access a list of books that your teachers have reserved.  That's why most of the books that look good will say OUT.  Don't worry -- they're OUT for you!

Along the top of this page, you'll see a tab called Bullying Resources.  That's where you'll get access to the links your librarians and teachers have found for you to speed up Step 3 of the research process.  Use these resources before go out to the Internet at large so you won't have to worry about source credibility.
