If you are using links to AskRI resources in LibGuides, find the already existing logos in the Shared folder in Images, and the already existing Links in Assets.  Both of these resources can be found under Content when you are logged into your LibGuides site.  If any logos or links that you want to use are missing, please email Dorothy Frechette.

At Tiverton High School Library Media Specialist Victoria Blaser and English teacher Sara Gray reviewed AskRI’s ‚Äč databases with seniors in the Writing to Inform class before taking a field trip to URI to work with Reference librarian Jim Kenney.  The students, who have been using EBSCO through AskRI’s interface for four years, got another leg up the process of getting ready for college during their research orientation at the university.  Students and parents also love the option of additional support through AskRI’s subscription to Tutor.com, where they can get help online after school hours from educators in a variety of subjects.    According to English teacher Faith Parisi, "I love knowing that my students can get trusted advice when I'm not available."
