Pathfinders

The internet has made available many wonderful tools to help you learn, but it has also made researching that much more difficult as you are forced to sort through more information than ever before to find what you are looking for. 

Save yourself some time by using our pathfinders. Pathfinders are guides to research topics, including key information and useful sites, all put together for you ahead of time by your friendly school librarian.
