Email! Yaaaaassss!

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

 

Encounters

By - Research & Instruction Librarian May 17th, 2016

Explicating during the last 2 weeks of term?

 

The Oxford Biblical Studies Online offers side-by-side commentary and Biblical text. (Does it up the database’s credibility to know it was accessed 1,200 times by last term’s 40+ Encounters students?).

 

To delve further into the scholarly conversation consider JSTOR and the library’s collections of academic eBooks.  More details and search strategies in the Encounters research guide (accessed 1,600 times by last term’s 40+ Encounters students).

 

Research questions?  Do let me know!  🙂

Capstone!

Capstone launches!

 

Looking for a topic? Need 3 possibilities before the end of the week?

 

Perhaps:

Global Issues in Context

What is it?  This eCollection contains global perspectives on contemporary global topics.

Each topic is accompanied by a collection of academic sources.

Sources include: reference book articles, newspapers, broadcast news, radio news, magazines, newspapers and scholarly journals.

 

Prefer to be inspired by academic film?

How about a browse through Kanopy : 26,000 streaming documentary, educational and classic films.

 

Looking for more suggestions?  Try this page in the research guide for more ideas that could lead to topic inspiration.
