                                                                                 Welcome to the Lakeland High School Library!

Oasis Library Catalog - look up what we have in this library! 
DATABASES:  If you have any issues with accessing or using our databases, please speak with Ms. Griffin.  You will get a list of passwords from your teacher or the library.  Ms. Griffin can also help you with your MLA 8th Edition citations and with completing your Works Cited page.  Make an appointment with her as needed.

24/7  BOCES Resource Library  This links to all the databases that LHS subscribes to.  They are in alphabetical order.   You have been given passwords specific to this school for home use.  Remember that if the blue & white rectangle comes up asking for a username and password, it is...  (not the password for the database but the general LHS password).

I suggest that you do not use either Gale Newsstand or the National Newspaper Index on 24/7 as these will only give you abstracts - not full text articles.  

(1) MLA 8th Edition now requires URL's on your Works Cited list.
(2) You need to click on "Cite" or "Citation Tools" -
icons within an article - and choose the MLA 8th Edition format to see exactly how your citation should look. Copy the citation into a document.  Then you can organize your list for your "Works Cited" page later.  Some databases have not switched over to MLA 8 yet and  will give you only the MLA 7th Edition format.  Make sure you grab the URL while you are there.

If you have any questions, please stop by to see Ms. Griffin.
