2013 Update: the first video, Research Tips - Part 1, talks about Web Collections Plus. This is currently NOT WORKING, so please skip this first video (for now). -- Mr. Schwan, 2/23/2013

Research Tips - Part 1

2013 Update: this video is still useful. It talks in detail about Alta Vista, a search engine similar to Google. It also talks about how to avoid website resources that are written by "regular" people who may not be experts on the topic you're looking for. Finally, there's a section that talks about our local Lee County Library System where you may want to look for paper-based resources like books, magazines, encyclopedias, and more. I recommend you  watch this short video with your parent, as this will help them to help you with this research project.

Research Tips - Part 2

2013 Update: this video is very useful for our second mini-research paper on a "Space Topic". It will walk you through a search on the NASA website. Note: you won't find this helpful for our first or last research papers, which means you can skip it for the Back in the Day research paper.
