Research Tips!

When researching at home using the MCPS Online Services, you will need to access usernames/passwords from your teacher or in your online classroom (Google or myMCPS).  MCPS Online Services are marked with an asterisk (*).

Most of the articles from MCPS Online Services have MLA citations already created at the bottom of the webpage.  Feel free to copy/paste the citations into a text file (ex. Word) as you compile your bibliography.

This is part of the trial subscription offerings.  Refer to your handout for login information.  Trial subscriptions are marked with two asterisks (**).
