Tech Boot Camp:  Using Michigan eLibrary (MEL)

 Michigan eLibrary is an educational database provided through membership in the Michigan Library Consortium.  All public schools have access to this through their school library.  Full text magazines and newspapers, practice testing for GED, ACT, Careers, SAT, etc.  MEL has 46 databases where you can read full text articles from magazines and newspapers; find current reference sources; use advanced search functions; cite sources.  The advantage of this site is that the information is valid and reliable, and limited in comparison to a search performed within a search engine like Google or Yahoo.  Additionally, there are Online Resources for Educators: Find lesson plans and curriculum aids searchable by subject or state standard.
