ElRo's LIBRARY & RESOURCE CENTER (LRC)
Destiny in the library management system that hosts our catalog. You may search the catalog without logging in. You'll see two tabs: "Home" and "Catalog."
Destiny's "Home" page features the Online Resource Directory (ORD).
This is a collection of core, online resources chosen by our librarian, Ms. Mendlowitz to help you perform research effectively and efficiently. These resources have been culled from the much larger ElRoBookmarks collection, which now contains over 2000 resources. The resources in this collection have been curated by Ms. M using the social bookmarking tool Diigo (sidebar link). They have been evaluated using the same criteria (CRAAP acronym- see "The Research Journey" presentation) you will have to use when assessing the worthiness and appropriateness of resources you want to use for research purposes. The "ElRoBookmarks" collection is searchable by keyword/phrase. Your teachers will often point you to ElRoBookmarks during your time here at ElRo.
She can help you locate, and evaluate print and online resources of all kinds. Once you learn how to use the LRC catalog (Destiny), you'll be able to find what you're looking for, even when Ms. M is not available.
You must check books out of the library with Ms. M or a teacher. If no one is in the LRC, use the sign-out sheet to the left of her desk. Please include all the information asked for, and write legibly.
