East Rochester MLA/Senior High Library: AP English 12 - Short Story Research Paper

Library Resources for AP English 12 

Video #1: Introduction & Finding Sources

Corrections to Video:

At 4:10 - I said "sources", but I meant to say "stories".  I guess I've just got sources on my brain.

Google Scholar - I forgot to mention Google Scholar, which only searches for academic articles.  Feel free to check it out. The one major problem is that it can be very tricky to see the full text of the article. If you find something that looks great, but you can't get the text, send me an email.  I can probably get the article for you.
