Search Hints:

  • Remember to be creative with your searches!  Don't just use the same words - think: "Latin America", "imperialism", "cultural influence", etc.
  • Don't forget to use quotes around a search phrase - "Latin America".  The computer is only so good as the search you put in it - and you are smarter than a computer!  You manipulating the computer = you getting better results.

The username and password are the same - use the 6 letter abbreviation of the school.

The number required is Good Counsel's five-number street address on Old Vic Blvd.



A word about everyone's favorite internet source...

  • Wikipedia is not the worst tool in the world - but it's not the best.  Always remember - Wikipedia should be used as a jumping-off point for academic research.  Wikipedia articles can help with general background information and for getting ideas for additional/different keyword search terms.  Wikipedia should be treated as the beginning of your journey, not the end!
  • What exactly do you know about Wikipedia?  Is it trustworthy?  Check out these sources for a bit more information:

Gotcha!  Student's Wikipedia Hoax Fools Mainstream Media

  • Remember:  Wikipedia is just "wikiality" - reality as decided by majority rule.  Do you trust classmates/younger siblings/random people to be experts?
