11th Grade Term Papers
Waynflete Library Catalog: Our little library has lots of good books for you. Try searching the catalog, but don't stop there. Emily can help you find more using indices and reference sources.
JSTOR is awesome, but notoriously difficult to search. It has hundreds of thousands of journal articles dating back more than 100 years. To search JSTOR, we highly recommend using Google with a search limiter. Simply add "site:jstor.org" to any Google search. There is no need to log in when you are on campus, but if we set up an account for you, you can save articles and searches. Let Emily know if you'd like an account. To access it from home, you need the password.
New York Times Archive provides full access to past NY Times articles since 1851. It is an excellent source for second semester term papers in particular. To gain access, you must set up an account. You may also want to download the app for your device.
US History Collection (from Maine State Library) This is BRAND NEW! It offers access to journals in US History. Try it out and let Emily know how it goes.
