SLHS Online Research Policy
All students who are researching electronic sources must use one or more of the following:
- our school's databases (see above)
- the web links provided on our school's web page
- websites provided by teachers
- sites found by students, but approved by teachers before they are included in a paper
Students need to use legitimate media resources (such as our online SLHS database, or other reputable databases) when conducting research for a course assignment. Google or Yahoo, for example, are not legitimate resources.
