Students need reliable resources for their reports. Ordinary websites might not be trustworthy (and teachers often limit the number of websites students can use), the best articles are copyrighted and not available for free online, and the library might not have enough books for every student when they all have the same assignment. What to do? Check out Student Resources in Context, one of Chandler Public Library’s online research resources! Find articles on a range of topics that students are researching, like history, literature, government and more. These articles are reprinted from magazines, newspapers and encyclopedias - just like the original publications - they’re free with your library card and they’re available from home even when the library’s closed. There are even Citation Tools to help students properly list the articles in their bibliography or works cited page.
To access Student Resources in Context from home, start at chandlerlibrary.org and hover your mouse over the Research & Learning tab. Then click A-Z list of Resources, and scroll down to choose Student Resources in Context. You’ll need your library card and PIN if you’re signing in from home. Then you can search by topic or scroll down the main page to view popular topics.
