Thank you checking out our media center website! We are off to a great start at MIS, choosing great books and learning about our own interests and curiosities. In order to help all students to be able to find appropriate books and information effectively, so far this year we have learned about the Dewey Decimal System, the most widely used library classification system in the world, which helps us locate books about Bigfoot, Black Holes, Basketball, Buddhism, and every topic or subject that doesn't begin with B as well! We are also learning how to use a table of contents, an index and a bibliography to find good information faster, so we can spend less time searching and more time synthesizing ideas and opinions. Of course, we find awesome books to read also, ALWAYS the most important thing we do!
