Email! Yaaaaassss!

By - Research & Instruction Librarian May 19th, 2016

Following a research class Wednesday, a teacher asked if any Hum. V students had emailed me yet.

My inbox reveals 33 research emails from Hum. V students this past week (can’t wait for the next two weeks!).


Curious how that compares to the rest of the year?  Since September, 137 research queries have arrived in my inbox mostly from SPS students, a few from SPS faculty, 2 from SPS alums and 1 from a student at Andover.  🙂


Looking forward to your end-of-year research questions over the upcoming concluding weeks of school.  I heart your research!  Ms. Sanborn


Dear Hum. V,

By - Research & Instruction Librarian May 12th, 2016

Great to see you this week!


I loved your mind-mapping of the ‘Scholarly Conversation.’


When you’re ready to leap into the academic literature, here’s the page in the research guide (screenshot below) listing four databases providing just that.


As always, please be in touch with any research-y queries!  I love hearing from you. 🙂
