Based on a survey conducted during last year’s contests, students shared that school and public libraries were their most popular places to conduct research. Along with libraries, they relied on archives, museums, and historical societies at some level as well. Below, you can find a list of the resources that students were using the most last year:
Each of these research locations has a different set of tips and tricks to better help students conduct their research. If they are using libraries, the first step is getting students looking in the right location and knowing who to ask for help. If you can, try and schedule a day in your school library where students can get one on one or group help from the librarian or look for books that will aid their research. Libraries, both school and public ones, can be great place to get online research done as well since some have access to online databases, free of charge! Plus, using data bases like EBSCO are always helpful to student researchers.
