INSPIRE

Indiana State Library

Indiana has a great resource for information called Inspire. Accessible to all people in Indiana, it has databases to search for articles, practice tests for SATs and other exams, Indiana history resources, and even some e-books. The articles come from books or magazines and will be recognized by teachers as “print” materials instead of online sources.  Best of all for kids, there are encyclopedias and even searches just for kids.  If you’d like to save your resource list as you go along there’s even a way to log-in and keep articles in your own personal folder. Press the link below to explore:



Kids Search  is the easiest of the search engines for youth. You can search for your topic and ask for a certain kind of resource (magazine, book and encyclopedia, biography, even photos, maps, & flags). You can also limit to your reading level if you know your lexile range. This is a perfect site for elementary school kids. Press the link below to explore (the Kids Search link is listed on the bottom left part of the INSPIRE page):



Student Research Center (listed at the bottom of the page) offers the same resources as Inspire Kids but at a higher level. This is a perfect site for upper elementary and middle school youth. Press the link to get started (the Student Research Center link will be listed on the bottom of the INSPIRE page).
