Spring is for Research

The Irene duPont Library has been very busy these past couple of weeks!  History students are diligently working on their research papers, gathering their primary sources, scouring our catalog and databases for topical information and requesting books to be ordered through inter-library loan. 

On any given day you will see students from Mrs. Tower's AS World War and AS Atomic classes, Ms. Pressman's AS Race, Mr. Gilheany's AS Modern Middle East and Mr. McAuliffe's AS Rome all hunkering down with their laptops going down that rabbit hole called research.
