Destiny Discover - Digital Resources
Since the beginning of the year, the Simon Lawrence Library has been collecting a variety of digital resources for our students and teachers, specifically our IB students, in order to support their research. So far, we have built 5 collections such as Resources for Writing Research Papers (TOK & EE), Useful Resources for Research, Books: Bangkok Book Awards, Books: Newbery Medal Winners and Books: TOK. In terms of available resources related to any research purposes, our collections contain several useful referencing tools for different kinds of citation styles including EasyBib, Zotero and MyBib, some practical guides for avoiding plagiarism and paraphrasing, learning how to do research, and two exclusive digital research libraries - JSTOR & Questia School that our school has subscribed to. We have already been encouraging our Y12 & 13 students to search recommended books for TOK in the collection called ‘Books: TOK (Theory of Knowledge)’ of our library system since last year. We believe these collections will be of huge help to students in doing their research,and especially for IB students to cope with TOK & EE.
